Okay, we finally made it through all the dormer videos. Thanks to everyone that was able to stay interested through it. We can now move on to other things. Having the dormer stones on the ground has really taken some of our stress off. We no longer have to be concerned with the destruction that would have ensued if one of these huge stone walls would have collapsed. Thanks for watching and thanks for staying with us through it all.
Only one more video after this one and the front dormer will be on the ground. Frank shows what it is like to prepare one of the large stones for lifting. Luckily we didn’t break any more.
This week’s video continues the takedown of the front dormer facade. We had a mishap on this one. As we were transporting one of the huge stones with the tractor, it slipped. Frank didn’t have it attached very well to the tractor bucket and down it went. It only fell about two feet but that was all it took. We will figure out how to put it back together or will make a new stone. Just one of the things that can and will happen over time.
We continue to take down the front dormer in this video. As we were taking it down, Kerry was trying to pull a brick off and we could see the wall swaying. We decided we needed to make sure the wall was secure before we lost the whole thing. Strapping up the wall will be in next week’s video.
We are finally getting rid of all the broken tubs that we pulled out of the Mooreland House 2 years ago. We put them in the back of the building that is on the property and we are trying to organize it. It sure brought back a lot of memories.
