From the dirt to our plate; the trials and realities of first-time farm ownership

Week 2: Quality Craftmanship

WEEK 2 
     Week 2 has started with a BANG and a few cuss words.  Demolition continues as we are ready to start seeing some positive changes in the house. Even baby steps are one step closer to completion…which I’m convinced will take for-ev-er!

     Today’s goal; remove the wall separating 2 of the smaller main level bedrooms. This new room will make up the new Master Bedroom able to fit a king sized bed. I made some progress as shown in the photo below, but boy did I underestimate the materials.

Future Master Bedroom


     I started out feeling strong and prepared after having a nice Mother’s Day the day prior. Unfortunately, that strength quickly drained due to the unbelievable, Guinness Book worthy, almost impenetrable strength of this particular drywall.
     Well, at least a load of tick infested laundry was completed today (looking at the bright side). Again, baby steps. Time to prepare dinner and work on practicing my sweet smile when my husband asks what I’ve done today. Maybe I’ll just show him my bruises.
