The tree removal people are coming today. Finally! The giant tree that blew over in the windstorm Friday night remains balanced against the shop/apartment.
They are going to cut it into pieces to get it down. It takes finesse to not cause additional damage in the process. I have no idea how they will do it.
I’ll keep the wood pieces so that if we lose our heat pump again at least we can build a fire outside. Just kidding.
Truly though, we are looking at a wood stove to have as a backup heat source…so the wood may be helpful in future winters.
Construction projects or moving large things has always amazed me. I am about as far from an engineering brain as possible. I can’t imagine how pieces fit together much less move. Although I took my fair share of engineering and math courses at the Naval Academy it was an uphill battle. My brain just doesn’t work like that. #fixedmindset lol
Anytime I fix anything around the house it feels like a huge win. Once Josh and I had a contest for who could put together 2 ikea shelves faster. I got a 10 min head start. Not only did I lose, but I did mine backwards, so he had to redo it. You’re welcome.
I’ll post some pics later of the tree removal. Should be cool.
P.S. I may not be able to remove the tree or fix the fence or roof…but I am building a baby. That’s cool 🙂
