The Waffles

This was one of those weekends where most of our "free" time was already spoken for. Not much was done at the house other than some wood moved and some layouts marked.

Sunday was a gorgeous day, and we ate lunch at the house. Our first meal cooked in the house, in fact! We had two waffle irons plugged into the generator, and had a lovely meal with all of us and Matt and Hannah (Andy and Chris' sister).

This is the current view from the mudroom entrance. Andy and Chris moved two stacks of wood on Saturday afternoon, and will continue to work on the remaining stacks this week.

We love craigslist. Karen and Mindy get pretty concerned with our zeal sometimes, but it usually ends well. "Wait, wait, wait... where do you think you're putting that sink?"

The sink on the right will be in the laundry room, and the overturned sink we're not quite sure about yet. Worst case scenario? It ends up back on craigslist for some other lucky guy to admire.

Yes, more craigslist. This clawfoot tub will be Chris and Karen's tub - we'll scour the outside, and it should clean up real nice. The claws are in their attic at the moment, collecting dust with a whole lot of other salvaged building materials.

Mmmm.... waffles. We cooked in the living room, and boy did they smell good!

Sounds fun. Glad your taking a break now and then from your hard work! We started building the kids a playhouse/swingset... ya, can't imagine building a whole house. I don't think I'm that patient!

You and Chad would have a great time building a house! Have fun with the playset - maybe we can come help next week when we're out there for a visit. :)
