Last night 5 men embarked on a journey to take out a load bearing wall and replace it with an appropriate support system.
The funny thing is that four of us are really desk jockey’s. But we all have a strong work ethic and got busy stripping walls and all kinds of other demolition.
A little more demolition and we were ready to raise the supports and start chipping away at the wall. Tearing down a wall is hard work and as I type this my whole body aches and I have blisters and gashes all over my hands and arms. Even my finger muscles hurt.
Ii may not look like much but I promise you that was a lot of work done in the 6 1/2 hours we were there. I just want to say a special thanks to the guys who worked last night.
They are (in alphabetical order) Clark Bryant, Ed Curry, Zach Skaggs, and Kevin Stover. And a very special shout out to my wife who got us food and beverages for the work night.
There is a lot more to be done over the next week and a half so if you want to be involved please let me know when you are available and we will find something for you to do. More to come.
