Our plan was to frame the rest of the full bathroom in the mudroom this past weekend, however my dad became ill with flu like symptoms. So, we decided to concentrate outside and continue to clean up the property. It was the perfect weekend to work outside, so I’m kinda glad we spent our time doing this.
Last week Ryan and his dad cut down 2 trees, with their new chainsaws. These 2 pine trees were dead, and needed to come down. They were like little kids, with their new “toys”.
Ryan was cutting at the wrong angle and putting too much pressure on the saw, which resulted in his chain falling off. So, he resorted to the old fashioned way while his dad tried to put the chain back on.
This past weekend we worked on taking out the fence behind the chicken coop, and the fence that was between the side yard and yard that has the far barn.
There were a lot of vines and branches intertwined in the fence which we used a saw and sawzall to cut out. Ryan had “fun” pulling the metal fence posts out of the ground. He didn’t notice the first day, but there was poison ivy intertwined into the fence in one area. His arm is now paying the price.
Here are the after pictures of this area . . .
On a side note, our electrician started this week and should be done by the end of the week. Our main contractor said we should be dry walling next week, which is music to my ears!!
