Well, Chris and I had a lot planned for this weekend, but it didn’t go QUITE as planned…..
The deck tear down wasn’t quite as easy as the last one, but it went smoothly until it came to ripping out the last concrete pier poured into the ground. Apparently this is the only thing on the house the previous owners did right. We battled with it for about 20 minutes, testing out quite a few methods to try and rip it out
Finally, we succeeded
It was pretty depressing. We’ve been getting really tired of microwave meals because we have no way of cooking any food. We also only have about one square foot of counter to prepare meals, so both of us are looking forward to have an operable kitchen. We’ll have to wait a bit longer now though
She and her husband really like triangles (it’s sorta their love sign), so that and purples, blues, and browns was her request for these. I like making them a bit interesting by switching colors around, or something similar (for instance, my mom’s left and right shoes had the same pattern, but the left shoe was in greens, and the right shoe was in blues). I don’t make much money in the end considering how much time I spend on them, but they’re a fun project to do at night while Chris and I hang out and watch TV, and it’s fun making something for people that they’ll (hopefully) like, so it’s a win win.
