I wasted no time diving in to rip that eye sore apart. Put a crowbar in my hand and I am a dangerous woman. I grew up on a farm with two brothers and an older boy cousin. Destruction and junk were just a normal part of my childhood. We were always tearing something down or building something up, playing with old junk and going exploring to the dump. I mean a trip on the stone boat pulled behind our tractor up to the dump with my dad was better than going to town when we were little kids. So I really enjoyed this project and when we got done with the first shed, I wasted no time getting my husband to pull the second one over. I think he was a bit shocked by my knack for destruction and though it was hard work, in two days we were left with this to look at
Next we had to tackle this: a rock and cement water fountain surrounded by our dog kennel. We moved the dog kennel to our newly cleaned area and then went to work chipping away at the rock fountain. This was a pain in the butt with more cement than rock but we prevailed and got the thing finished by 8:00pm Tuesday night. We then stayed up until 11:30 pm setting up the swing set for Small fry for her birthday party the next day. AHHHH-what a project. There is still more to do on this part, with sand to put down and stuff but we went from this to...
this and I am so happy with how it looks. I hated that rock wall. This is a really great play area now.
Now that we are on a roll with these backyard renovations my husband and I can't be stopped. The list of projects we want to do grows everyday. We will see what happens. Yay for crowbars and sledge hammers and a dad that taught this girl how to tear down some serious junk.
