Weekend Warriors- February 2018


So the big shebang this WHOLE month has been about the shed project. Specifically the kitchen and 1/2 bathroom portion of the shed.

Last time I updated, my dad, MrWard, and the hubby were pulling out all the old nasty insulation and fixing a very bad roof leak that had been causing water damage and mold for whoknowshowlong.

Well, let me tell you. They have busted out electric, plumbing, a sub floor, new insulation, new ceiling and WALLS!



I don’t know if non homesteading/homeowning people can understand the elation of seeing a YEAR PLUS LONG PROJECT finally coming to fruition.

So here is some more pictures of the work in progress


Yeah, we had to do the initial setup outside, but in all reality this is what a lot of back yard syrup makers do- the moisture you boil off would destroy most interiors at 40 gallons of sap to 1 gallon of syrup made. So MrGillis slapped together a wind break, set up the turkey fryer and filled it with glorious sap. You can smell maple as you walk up onto it. It is officially the end of winter folks!

Until next time, have a wicked good day.

    1. Yeah it’s actually a bit early this year, but gotta take advantage of it when the weather is as nice as it’s been
