Week 2 // October 17-23
The kids and I went up to Fort Wayne for the week to stay with my parents. That way Bryce could focus on working on the house--and that he did, from sun up to sun down, literally.

|This is where it started: all of that wood is not supposed to be black|
|Support wall in the master bedroom|
|The cut out in the corner of the master bedroom|
|That doesn't look too good!|
|Rotten parts are cut out|
|The old sliding door is gone and all of the decaying wood is replaced.|
Our kitchen had a lovely wrought iron spiral staircase down to the basement. From the beginning we knew it had to go! There is an actual staircase just a few steps away in the front hallway and the spiral stairs used up precious real estate in the kitchen. Bryce took out the stairs and filled in the hole.
He also killed an unwanted house guest: a snake. Yes, a snake. We think it was living in the basement. Oh the joys of moving into an unoccupied house. There's one big plus in all of this: there were no mice in the house! Also, another plus: no other snakes have been sighted.
