Gradually, One Step at a Time—Sunday, March 8, 2015

StartGradually —- one step at a time we are getting the projects down at the other house done. The refrigerator and the stove are now in their new position in the kitchen and the kitchen is rewired to accommodate their move.

The new sheet rock is up ready for Terry to mud in the seams and for me to paint–sometime this week.


The old coal room and the pantry are starting to take shape as one room. Friday and Saturday Terry and I started removing the very well built coal furnace chimney…it is no longer in use and stuck in the middle of the new room to be.

Our oldest daughter helped us on Friday and



Saturday our son and his wife came out and helped take most of the chimney down. Terry and I will get the rest.

Things still left to do, before farming starts:

  • Build an entry under the house so repairs are easier
  • Finish the plumbing on the tub
  • Move the water heater to it’s new spot
  • Wire the new room for electrical plug ends
  • Hang the new walls

The furnace and duct work will occur sometime this summer.


Our goal is to have everything finished by the end of next week.  Please keep your fingers and toes crossed that we make it!  (Magic thoughts and/or prayers would be nice also. 🙂 )

Your friend on a Western Colorado farm,

  1. OK. I just figured it out. Y’all (as we used to say down South where I was born) are workaholics with crazy timetables. You’re gonna redo a house in the time it takes me to clean out my closets. I think I need to go have myself a real come-to-You Know Who.

  2. The other house is gonna be a beauty! It’s cuz the ditches will start flowing and seeds need to be planted and flower beds need to be cleaned out and new plants planted and then the temps will start to get hot and the ditches will need tending… You guys are AmAZinG!!! When I think I have too much to do, I think of you 🙂 Best kick my b_ _ _ in gear and get busy!
