home renovations



So, I decided that if we were to dig out our crawl space, it would make a GREAT place to store our food storage that I have recently gotten serious about doing. So..... I asked Ryan to help me (and I am lucky enough that he obliged me.) Here are the beginning photos.... so we can log the progress. Of
course, I bought cheap, plastic buckets that already broke, so I had to go and get new ones. I was afraid to buy them too big as they would be too heavy to carry out. The "door" is up off the ground about 4 feet, making shuttling in and our very difficult. We want to cut it to make it a big door, but we think it is a weight bearing wall, so we will have to reinforce the heck out of it. Plus, then we will have to cut a concrete wall. So, we have started, anyway. We took a day off, husband already gave himself a blister. I have to admit, though, pounding the rocks and dirt is kinda fun. :)
