Project House :: Playing With Fire

There are times when we look at each other and wonder if it's worth it - pouring money into the PH. It needs a new roof, wiring & plumbing, and the whole back section is probably going to end up in a full-on remodel/addition because we have a hard time doing anything half-way. The real killer is that at some point we don't even want the house there - we want a bigger side yard. So...put money into the house, pay off said house (and what remains on our mortgage too), tear down house (or sell to be moved) and hopefully come out ahead in the end so we can do it again. These are just some of the things we were pondering on Saturday as we burned large piles of lath down to a ring of fire. We didn't come up with an answer to our quandary, but it felt good to burn something and it was cheaper than hauling load after load to the dump. If we are going to take this project all the way, every little bit of saving helps!

  1. I am really looking forward to reading about the progress of PH. The pictures of the fire are beautiful.

  2. I'm sorry, did you say you wanted a bigger back yard? Isn't that a ginormous field you have there? Love a good bonfire!
