We started the addition!
And it’s been….. interesting . We found out the hard way a few years ago the original owner took all kinds of short cuts when he built the house. Minor details (not)little things like water pipes plumed straight through without emergency shut off valves..you know **ahem** minor details…. So I’m not sure why I was so surprised when we started construction that NOTHING in the space where we are working in is square. Not the floor to the walls, not the outer edge, the support poles? Bah Not even the existing walls or ceiling!! So it’s been a challenge for Mr. Fix~It framing. He had the first section done (the longest area) completed last night.
He claims he was just looking at photosThe wall was done & ready to go up. We hoisted it on the pulley we rigged, were tapping it into place….& the pulley broke and down the wall went…over Mr. Fix~It! Thankfully he was able to quickly turn to have his feet turned the length of the wall. As it was going down I had these visions of an emergency room visit with 2 crushed feet….. Rebuilt, we called Danielle and she came over to help support the wall as we wedged it in. This section with the framing up will be my STUDIO!!!!!!
RAHHHH! The crowd roars!!!!
Or, is that my family happy knowing the yarn will be out of the living room soon?
