Just got back from spending two days down at the house. We stayed in the big trailer down there. Boy did we ever accomplish a lot! I got Brian's old room all cleaned out and set up to be my office. Moved in a few desks and a bookcase, more to come! Also cleaned out the front room, (soon to be the Hummingbird Room) so it is ready to be worked on. It is down to bare walls! Then we tackled the back room and got about 3/4 of the paneling torn off. I think I must have pulled over 200 nails! It was nice to have the pool table gone and to be able to work in there. Brian also worked out in the shed, moving furniture around and setting up his new tool box. We also filled up the pickup bed with garbage and took a load to the dump! Just a little over 3 weeks now until we can move in!

Brian went down to the house today along with his friend Steve and they took the pool table out! Wow! Now we can start tearing that room apart!

Brian and Madison went down to the house and took some boxes down and Brian did some measuring in the kitchen and the cabinets and drew up some plans. We are looking forward to getting down there and tearing out the cabinets and putting them back up in a whole new design.

We went to Astoria today to pick up an OLD Murphy bed. It is all brass and we will manage to find room for it in the house somewhere. Took it down to the house and stayed for a while and worked on moving more boxes around. Found a few dead mice! Ick! Hopefully when we get all the walls torn down and the restoration work done, we will get rid of the little critters! We can hardly wait to move in!

We made a fast trip down to the house to take a pickup load down. Went to an auction last night and got a few things, an old stove and some tins, etc. Started moving boxes around to make room to set up my office in Brian's old bedroom. Today we saw an otter sunning herself out on one of the rocks in front of the house. It was fun to watch!

Went down to the house today and took our first big load of furniture and beds! Emily and John were here and helped us load and unload. Nice to have the help! We gave Judy a move in date of March 15th. Wow! It's really happening and soon!
