There’s a Hole in my House, dear liza, dear liza…

There’s a hole in my house, dear Liza a hole. The framing all came down on Sunday and my NEW favorite tool is the Shop Vac. That damn thing was sucking the mortar off the exposed fireplace bricks. I think I am in love.


Michael also took down two trees using only a handsaw. I have to give him a bunch of credit for that feat. While I was vacuuming up wall and floor debris, he was singlehandedly hauling trees and throwing them into the back of a truck. It’s a good thing the weekend was over, because there was no room left in the inn. I am also confident we wouldn’t have survived a third day.
