No, I’m not talking about mathematics…I’m referring to an addition onto our house! We had the house up for sale for 6 months but it didn’t sell. We had put it in the Lord’s hands but my father was praying that we wouldn’t sell! (ha ha! I guess he is better connected than I thought!) Tommy however still really wanted his own room so my dad came up with the idea of enlarging the shed and he would foot the bill (since it’s his fault we are still in this house!)
Here’s a before shot…
Before the demolition could begin we had to move a few things. The strawberry bed had to go. I gave lots away, transplanted quite a few and then decided to sell the rest as a fund raiser for Timothy’s summer camp. We moved the brick walk and the large white stones so that we can pour a large concrete slab that will serve as a future Florida room and new back porch.
This is the FULL strawberry bed that had to be relocated.
Here’s the new strawberry bed, located on the back of the house near the compost bins, much smaller and thinned out.
And here is a shot of the demo.
Today the block and sand were delivered. The forklift driver was amazing! I couldn’t believe how well he handled that machine! He was able to drive it through our double gate which meant we didn’t have to take down fence panels (just yet).
He fit, but just barely!
We have decided that Annie will take the new room. She really wants a loft bed and this room will have vaulted ceilings, giving her plenty of headroom. Tommy will keep his room and Timothy will take Annie’s room. Eventually we will glass in a Florida room which will double as a hang out room whenever we have family gatherings. And we hope to eventually get a pool. I guess we are digging in deep!
