Chico and I spent a couple hours at the new house (which needs a name, and we’re working on that) on Monday while a local crew trimmed some branches overhanging the roof and driveway, took out a couple dead or dying trees, and trimmed low brush.
Here’s Jason, working on the limbs of a pine tree that was over hanging the roof and blocking view.
We walked around looking at things on the property, like other places to clean up, and came across this giant, old, dangerous as heck to use, industrial boiler I forgot I owned. I wonder what I’ll do what that?
I wanted to get some pictures of the tree work because I am impressed with that sort of skill.
I noticed afterwards that Chico must have spent the whole time behind me, far from noisy saws and falling limbs – he’s not in any of the shots.But he would come inside with me to get some “before” shots of the house.
Here’s a little panorama of the wide open downstairs.
The kitchen will move to the corner the shot was taken from. I think.
The stairs will move to the other side of the house.
The outside, after the work:
And here’s Chico, approving of the improved access to the river:
The mill here was once a water powered and you can see some of the works behind Chico. Cool, huh? I feel that we’re going to be very happy here once the house is fixed up and we move in.
Looking good, Annie!
