Fact: The house in Hooterville project is whipping our butts.
This would have been quite an ambitious project even if we were in our 30’s but since we are well into our 50’s, all I can say is…
Eeeegads! WHAT were we thinking?!
Initially, we were planning to do most of the work ourselves but after we came to our senses, we realized it was just not humanly possible. Even calling in reinforcements for help with things like clearing the overgrowth, installing the fencing, and some of the interior prep work and priming, it has still been a huge undertaking.
Intellectually, I know a lot has been accomplished in 6 weeks but when I look at the pictures, it seems like very little has been done. The place still looks like an old run-down farm and I’m beginning to wonder if we will ever get it looking decent in our lifetime. ::sigh::
Here’s a few things that have been happening.
