Fixer Up'er

Today we tear into the foundation of our 1880 house.  The living room floor is sinking in the northeast corner near the front door.  We had the same problem a few years back on the northwest corner foundation.  We are into another fixer up'er project.

Our new friend Steve Williams is tackling the job for us.  Ed was never too good at these projects so he made his money where he could and hired out the jobs he couldn't do.  In my older age and arthritis that has been "killing me," his help was never needed more than today.

The bright thing was that LuAnn greeted them at the door and there was one of her graduates, Tim, from Turning Point.  What a blessing!  We see this happen continually in our lives as we work to do God's Will, not ours.  Tim is now Steve's main man!

The opening from the old brick lined cellar into the crawl space isn't big enough, so they have to cut the wall out bigger.  Wouldn't you know there is the Highland County water line into our house right in the way.  So the water line has to be moved, too.  We have no water right now except what we pulled out into containers before they got here.

When the hole is big enough to access better, there is a pile of old homemade bricks under the living room floor that have to be removed.  Steve can crawl in there and get pictures of the underneath to see what needs to replaced or rebuilt.  Then, he can lay down a plastic moisture barrier to keep the humidity from swelling our hardwood floor.

I got up an built a wood fire and finally got LuAnn's office pellet stove working in the far south office and craft room.  Now I need to teach one of the neighbor boys how to take it apart and clean it so it will burn properly.  It's a Countryside and this is our 7th or 8th winter to use it for heating the south side of the house into the mudroom and utility room south of the kitchen.  It really makes a difference on a chilly day like today.

The sun came up so beautifully yesterday after a week of darkness, it felt so good.  It reminded me of a similar day 35 years ago when our oldest son Matthew was born.  It was one of the most beautiful sunrises I could ever try to explain to you.  You knew something special was happening in the heavens.  I teased him about 35 and he said oh that isn't the worst part, that means I am almost 40!  Time goes by that quickly.  He gets it.

I saw two neighbors shelling corn last night, though it is now on the muddy side.  You can tear up a driveway loading area real quickly.  We might shell my last 27 acres this afternoon, it is a well drained bottom and hillside.  Then we can move to the rest of the corn our group has.

The dust is rolling out of the cellar pretty badly and it's enough to make you cough so I better get off here.  Have a great weekend.

Ed
