Daunting Task

Frank’s family had a reunion in Montana so we have been away for a few days. Today we spent some time with the Mooreland House to see if we could figure out what she wants us to tackle next. Alas, she was no help. On our own we decided to tackle one of the things we really were putting off. We are going to take down the front wall, fix it right and put it all back together. Seems simple but it is gonna take a while.

      We will be happy if it looks like it did 130 years ago. That’s all we are shooting for. =)

    I don’t know but for some reason my eyes zeroed in on that split between those stones going horizontally and thought to myself at least she I won’t be doing the splits anymore. I know call me where everybody else does but either way she’ll be beautiful

    Looking forward to some of Frank’s corny ‘stoned’ jokes! My prayers are with you. Moving stone is a daunting task; not that other jobs aren’t but that stuff is just so heavy.

      Yes, we are sure that Frank will be rock’n the “stoned” jokes. =)

    I’m wondering in the end if this new project will have been your most challenging task. You’ve accomplished so much in the year that you’ve had Mooreland House! She really requires a “Jack and Jill of all trades” given her desperate condition. But, oh the accomplishment !! I can’t wait to watch the videos.

      Yes, it will be very challenging. We have to take it all down and then mimic the way the original masons did the work in order to make it all fit back together again. It is a great big puzzle with very heavy pieces. =)
