Floored Part II

Last week in our exciting episode of “Let’s Renovate an Old Church in Our Spare Time” we left halfway done with the floors. So what was it like to go back at it the following weekend? It was awesome. It was like getting back on the horse, after you had fallen and broken all the […]

Pardon Our Dust!

The walls have come tumblin’ down. But not without a lot of coaxing, urging, and back breaking labor! First step: prep. I spent a day solo moving all the furniture and tools into two aisles so that the walls were clear. I felt very empowered¬†after the move.The place was a mess, as you see. Step […]
