I am passing the baton to my dear husband.

Well my goal for today was accomplished.  I got all the sod off the roof and many of the boards.  It is ready to have the roof rafters and ceiling rafters taken down.  That is Lynn’s part of the project and he has this week to get it done.  As next weekend we will be removing  floorboards and seeing whether we will be using the joist that are there or whether we will be replacing those also.  Got the feeling, they will be replaced.

We are also planning on pouring the cement posts.  If we get that far next weekend, I will be a happy girl.

I had planned to wait until the project is done before showing you pictures, but I just can’t wait that long.  So I will be posting a few of the ones as we progressed to how it looks today.  Really had no way to go but up.

Annie, the demo queen.
