Somehow we are still alive...

This first week of work has been quite an adventure. After our moving of debris, we moved on to a house that we were too demolish. Our first day at this house we started by removing the shingles. It was a good day. The rest of the time since Thursday, from working on this house, we have not gone a day without and injury. These included, someone getting wood chips in their eye, a nail in the foot, electrocution, a wood chunk in someone's arm and 2 walls falling on the same person. From the walls falling on lex, he first suffered a concussion and then his arm in a sling. We are still working on this house. Thankfully all the walls are on the ground in pieces but we are convinced this house is cursed. 

Oh, more exciting stuff that happened, after lex got electrocuted from wires that should have been shut off, we broke the gas pipe and natural gas was everywhere. The fire department came as well as the gas company and we were delayed work for a while. Cedar 6 has a tradition now that each round the fire department has to be involved somehow. It's only been a week and we have had quite the experience. The house is fully demolished, just needs to be put on the dump trailer.

  1. Wow! It has been awhile since I have last read up on "Alyse's Adventures" sorry about that. Looks and sounds like .... well.... an adventure. It sure looks like you are seeing "small town" USA, which to me is pretty cool. You must have many stories to tell everyone.

    Thanks for sharing the photos really gives me a sense to what you guys are doing and accomplishing. Keep up the good work and be safe.
