Wow! The roof of the Mooreland House is pretty bad in sections. Of course, the people that follow our blog know that this has already happened but it is now being presented to the YouTube world. One of these days we are going to find something that is in good shape… we are still waiting. We are 90 subscribers away from 2,000. If you guys share this video on your social media, we might just make it. Kerry would be thrilled!
We paid the groundskeeper a little extra this mowing so she would tidy up a little bit around the tenant house in the back yard of the Mooreland House. Not sure how Kerry is going to feel when she finds out she is paying herself. =)
The sun was shining just right this morning and we thought everyone might enjoy a couple pictures of the shadow cast by the Mooreland House. This place never seems to surprise us with how spectacular it is and will be again some day!
This week’s video is of Frank trying to patch a hole in the roof and ending up taking the entire slate off of that portion. It is another roof video so those that are averse to heights might want to watch with an adult. =) Thanks for helping us grow the YouTube channel. You guys are great!
We got the tractor running again and we decided to see what would happen if we tried to scrape the driveway. Viola! We have gravel under the couple inches of organic material that has collected there over the years. Now we just have to allot some time to scraping the grass off.
Unfortunately, we can’t start the roof with the threat of rain. Instead we decided to do some much needed maintenance on the tractor. Someone really messed up the wiring and we are attempting to make it better. It is like a rat’s nest. It’s always something…
We really need to clean up some brush piles around the Mooreland House. One of the many strategies are going to use is our new chipper. Kerry had a few thorn tips in her hands when she was done. Osage Orange trees are not very nice.
We now have successfully put slate back on a wall. Of course, there are only 3 of the slates that actually were reused. I wish I would have taken a picture of how this area looked with all the tar. You won’t find any tar here and it doesn’t leak.
Surprise! We put out a new video. It must be Sunday morning. =) In this video Frank does a pretty good job of explaining what “box gutters” are. He also shows how a very damaging leak was very hidden and hard to find. YouTube promotes videos based on how many “likes” it gets and how many people comment on the video. Remember to share the video on all your social media sites so we can share the Mooreland House with more people.
