Initially, my husband built the house for his dad to come spend weekends and his declining years here in the country.Jack never spent much time here once the project was completed-he loved working on it- but just didn't want to live there. :(
Each of our adult children have rented the house at one time or another-until hurricane Rita.
We had just added 2 bedrooms a couple of years before transforming it from a camp to a real house. Lots of work and lots of money!!!When Rita did major damage it was so overwhelming that we did little else but protect it from further damage and forget it. It was just too costly.
Since then we have slowly cleared the path,and made structrual repairs.
As of last Monday we have jumped in with both feet to make it livable again.
Bekah gladly cuddled Wendy so Sara could get things done.
The guys got some huge trees and all the bridge pieces out of the brush and exposed the yard again!!!
And the boss gave all of us directions and kept us moving!
Me? I'm in charge of pictures. :)
After only a couple days work with both son in laws,Luke and the girls it has shaped up alot!!! The inside is gutted and ready for new materials to start going in next week.
It's already been lots of fun having the kids out to eat and work every evening.
We'll use anything for an excuse to make it a party!!!!
