Pictures of our progress on our place

Just a few pics to update any progress we are making on our recent acquisition. We have a long way to go, but it will all be worth it. Carol got started scraping and putting a prime coat on the house. I have been doing a little bit of everything. The floor in the kitchen is not good. Too many water leaks in the past that were not taken care of. The addition that the kitchen is in has a tin roof. Some of the tin was loose, so I tried to nail it down today only to find that the roof is also rotten under the tin so that will have to be replaced. The floor will have to wait until the roof is fixed or it will be to no avail.

We have gotten most of the weeds taken care of. We have a very large burn pile at the back of the property. Carol saw a couple of rats today. Not surprising with the weeds and trash that were on the property. Eventually those will be taken care of. There are a few holes in the foundation that will have to be plugged to help keep the varmit population away.

Will post more pics as time goes.
