Today we spent some time (all day) decorating
Our Tin Shack
This wall behind the wood stove have been unfinished cement
board for 5 1/2 years. Just one of those
things we wanted to do but it was not on top
of the "list".
Today it got marked OFF the list.
We began at about 9:00 am
Laying out the first rows, trying to figure out how to
fit it all together. Now mind you
we er/ Kirk is not a stone mason
so this has been a challenge....but we don't shy
away from a challenge.
The first rows are going up
Many of the stones needed "fitting"
Kirk is using his Grandfathers rock hammer to do the work.
The finished project. After much frustration
a few stress releaving breaks.
We finished up at about 8 pm.
I will tell you this job is not for the faint at heart
Kirk did all of the installing, I chose most of the
Of course the "rocks" are really concrete and came in boxes
but after trying to collect real rocks we decided if
we ever wanted to get this done we should buy them.
Beside you need a "permit" to collect rocks
There are 3 little shelves in the wall also, to put treasures on.
Now I need to do something about that door
and the switch covers, but that is
for another day.
We are tired. So I will call it a night.
God's Blessings to you and your family.
