  • A good use for the old house
  • Banked dirt against the back of the house, Cut a hole in it and then drove the rider through the kitchen then dinning room into the living room !

    Plan on storing some more stuff in that part of the old house.
    Why not ???

  • Doing good over there.
    Out on the left coast Island, I have three friends building new houses. All have the roof on. But it has been raining for weeks. We might set a record.
    In total there are 46 new places being built on my Island.
    I hope to start my cottage next year.

  • Concrete takes 21 days to cure so you will be good and cured when they are ready to set the house.

  • I would be concerned about load bearing. I'n sure that there is no elevator in the old house. An 8N heading down to a crawl space or basement could be a bad ending.

    I guess you could take you lawn tractor and cruse the house room to room Reflecting on the Memories you and your family have created.

    I have ridden past old, houses with the windows gone and holes in the roofs and wondered, Who lived in them Back in there day. The children born and families raised and the memories made and the futures planned in those old homes. If the old Houses could only Talk.

    Have a Great Day

  • Dave, did I miss the setting of the new house? I just scanned down to the picture of the basement and have not found anything. Hope everything is on track.

  • Are you going to seal and insulate the outside basement walls? I didn't do mine when I did my addition 20 years ago and now I'm starting to get moisture through the block. Going wait till spring to try to Drylock the inside.

  • Smile. Look at the positive. The blocks and mortar have great cure time. Also, remember what it was like when we were kids waiting for Christmas. The anticipation is awesome. It will happen. Next year we will look back and laugh. We are looking forward to pictures.
