This is the back porch off the kitchen. If you enlarge the picture (by clicking on it), you can see that the floor of the room is wayyyyy below the bottom of the door going into the house. Also, this back wall that we tore off was in such back shape from the rain and the wind, that we decided to rip it out completely and redo the wall from scratch.

I am going to try to go back through this past year and write a new post on some of the projects that have been completed, mostly completed or are in progress.
In order to lay the hardwood floors, Kelly had to fix the rotten sub-flooring and the rotten floor joist in order to make sure we did not fall through the floor at the front door!!
This first picture shows the board (it's the one on the mat) that we placed over the hole near the front door when we first moved here almost 5 years ago.

start up again on this blog as there has been a lot accomplished since my last post on May 9, 2020. This has been quite the year plus with Civid-19 restrictions, my heart issues that have caused me to have no energy until 2 months ago and Kelly having to work full-time now that the hotels in Bandon have been able to open.
I think I will start with the walkway for my quilting clientele. You can find the prep work HERE when Kelly dug up the pathway in June, 2019. It then sat dormant for a long time and during that time the weeds came back in mass!!
So, after cleaning it alllll back out again, the work on the walkway could commence!!
Boards are already!!
Then we laid weed barrier before putting in the foundation.

First, we have been scrambling since the first part of the year to find a way to re-fiancne a house that is not done enough to get a mortgage on it and the guy we bought it from was not too excited about extending our original loan past the first of June.
Thank goodness for my dear, dear friends, T and Jason who have so kindly agreed to loan us the money to pay off the original owner and allow us to make payments like a normal mortgage. The mental stress of not knowing if we would lose our home was almost too much!! But now I can take the time to sit down and show off some of the work that has been going on around here.
Today, while Kelly was putting in a new window into the scary bathroom ~
I was out in the back mowing the lawn down from 24 inches to what you see here!!

Kelly worked for hours today removing the toilet and plugging off the old plumbing and creating big holes in the floor to allow the plumbers to place the new plumbing on Monday.
This is the old toilet. For some stoopid reason, they had it set at an angle ~
Kelly removed the toilet ~
And opened a hole for the plumbers to get into.
See the little white garbage can off to the left upper part of the picture? That is where this old, nasty, leaking water heater lived. That came out and we need to fix the water soaked floor under where it used to be.
