World Famous

Our house was unexpectedly on the news. We're having some trees taken down, and they interviewed the crew doing the work.

Here's the link to the KOIN article and video. They made it seem like we were removing them because they are dangerous, but it's actually because they are ugly weed trees, and I want our yard to be full of lovely plants that are native to Oregon.

Fixing a hole

Trying to fix the squeaks in the wood floor is proving to take longer than I had hoped. But it will be worth the effort.

More Progress

Today we started to remove the chimney, and tore down most of the kitchen wall. There is already a huge difference in the amount of light that comes into the kitchen. Next week we have someone coming to patch the roof, so we'll disconnect the appliances that vent through the chimney and knock it down all together. I can't wait! I was jealous that Ben got to go on the roof, and I didn't,  but with my ear condition, it's just not safe for me. Boo.

Houston, we have a table

Look at the dining table I got off Craigslist! It's the best thing ever. Drop leaf, and it has two removable leaves so it can seat from two to eight people. It fits perfectly in our house. Now who's coming over for dinner? We don't have a kitchen, but I'm sure we can work something out.
