Day One

It was a great first day! As the sun poked out from behind the clouds, ten or fifteen of us showed up for a clinic on proper hammer swinging and we had a successful time converting the Family Room back into the garage it once was (just kidding). Drywall was ripped from the ceiling, paneling was ripped from the house, and the impractical facade of ugliness was stripped away to reveal its hidden potential. We're tired! No one was inordinately hurt and we were all thankful for it (best not to ruin yourself on the first day -save that for the end of the week!) Some of us were even inspired to take on entirely new projects, like Dave Adey deciding he would re-tile the kitchen counters! Fantastic! Hey Dave, you rip that tile out with this feral claw hammer while I stand over here looking for new tile in the budget!

Seriously, tremendous thanks to everyone who gave so much. It is really coming together and we are truly looking forward to another day at it.

And just check out these choice pics:

Oh my goodness. What a first day, and a posting to boot! Quite impressive, I must say. So glad the weather ended up cooperating. Can't wait to join you all. Be sure to save me something 'fun' to do! :)
Love to you all!
