Well, we have already had a busy Saturday morning here!
I don’t think I have mentioned it on my blog yet, but we are preparing to add a two story addition to the side of our home.
We will be adding it to the right side of our home.
But there was one thing standing in our way…
A huge cedar tree!
See it standing there (this is the view from the back of our home before we moved in)…
From inside our home, the cedar tree is visible right outside our sliding glass door.
(This room did have our king bed in it, but it was way too big. So we had to downsize to a queen bed and put it in the other room of our “master wing”. Now this is going to be an office room for the time being. More on that to come in a later post!) :)
Soooo, this morning we cut that baby down!
Cy has a friend that likes to help with odd jobs around our house sometimes. So he came over and cut the tree down.
It was a little nerve-wracking watching it fall. We didn’t want it to hit our house!
But it fell just perfectly!
I wish you could “smell” these pictures. I took this picture all the way from the other side of my house (using my zoom lens), and I could smell the cedar from all the way over there! It was amazing!!
Look at that beautiful cedar wood!
We posted on Craigslist that we had a huge cedar tree that needed to be moved, and anyone could have it if they would haul it off.
So next week, there is a man who needs some cedar posts for his cabin, and he will be hauling off our cedar tree.
But until then….
Let the fun begin!!
The boys thought they’d died and gone to heaven!
Eli tried and tried, but he couldn’t climb up. He said the tree was “poinking” him.
Bless his precious heart!
I tried to help him up but the branches kept hurting him, and he wanted down.
But Luke and Adam were off and running!…
Here is a view from the front of the house so you can see how big the tree was…
Do you see Luke and Adam walking down the tree trunk?
When they made it to the end, they jumped off and started all over again!
Poor little Eli still couldn’t get up that tree!
This coming week, we will be having the crawl space dug out and the footer laid to our new addition.
I wish I could say we will be building the addition right away, but it may take awhile before we have the funds (if ya know what I mean!) :)
Monday, I will share with you Mandy’s blue bathroom makeover!
It looks amazing!
So, what have you been up to this weekend?
