Preparing for the demolition

Sierra never wastes a sun-puddle.

It was a sunny, cool day today. Much like most Autumn days albeit a little early for us. We still have a few days of summer but the trees on our property say different. They are beginning to change colour now.

The old log building has been stripped of all the barn board and insulbrick and tomorrow the roof comes off. The inside will also be emptied and swept out. The roof especially will be a bit awkward to work with so a bit of co-ordinating was done today to make this all happen tomorrow.

Down to the logs and they look pretty good.

Monday morning the loader will arrive to take the logs down. They will be carefully piled up and waiting to become the new log building that I so desire to see. It will also be built in a different spot; just in front of the apple trees. That will not be done, though, until next Spring. We have a much bigger project to complete before then. More on that soon.

Kane was a bit tired from all the commotion and his walk about the perimeter of the property made him a little sleepy. He is fourteen, after-all.
After a bit of chow and some fresh water he went back to the car and snoozed the afternoon away.

We look a bit dirty but that's to be expected. Couldn't leave without a selfie. ;-)

I'll be out tomorrow with my camera again for those who find this interesting and want to follow along.

Have a great weekend,

hugs, Deb


  1. Kane does look rather like he just woke up. I love that Sierra shot. Very Caravaggio!

  2. I just love the word sun-puddle! I love that Kane sleeps in your car. You have a great weekend too. Greetings Jo

  3. I love the fact that you are saving and rebuilding the log structure. It should look lovely when it's finished.

  4. What a wonderful building, and an exciting project. Yes, please ... we want to see EVERYTHING!

  5. That afternoon nap in the sunshine on a cozy blanket, all tucked into the cave of the car looks pretty darn good.

  6. Good luck on your ventures this weekend! I do love those sun puddles!

  7. Hello! New follower, we LOVE cats. I came over from John's blog. Love that picture of Sierra in the 'sun puddle'. I love that term. Off to catch up on your blog. :-)

  8. Was the log building constructed by your Gran or does it go back even further? I'm fascinated by its construction and durability.
