In addition to this, my dear mother in law has Altzheimers and the family had to put her in a nursing home this past spring. Their family home is on about 8 1/2 acres of which 5 acres is a pond. We will be moving into this home sometime this month. Yes, horrible timing with the holidays, but my dad's house selling delayed the move a bit and then, well things just don't move fast do they?
There are two buildings on the property besides the house. One is a one bedroom apartment (the Honeymoon Cottage since several of the newlywed couples moved in for a while after they married-including us) and a 12x24 old radio transmission shack. I am making that shack my new crafting cottage.
My dear husband and sweet brother in law have been working hard to turn this old building into a craft room delux for me. They tore everything down to the studs and are rebuilding from there. Needless to say, I am very excited! This past weekend, we brought in some experts and a ton of progress was made. My DH and BIL worked with them and so much was accomplished. I will try to keep you posted with photos, but here are a few that show what has been done so far. Excuse the photo quality-they were mostly taken with a phone.
One side with out exterior wall-during demo.
I'll show more demo tomorrow and then move on to the progress.
