Sorting, stickering, stacking.

Hemlock that is.  We’ve spent every night this week doing just that until dark.  Dinner is  usually eaten at 7:30 if we’re lucky.  Phew.  And the trailer is still not unloaded.

Eli got a really great deal on the hemlock.  But the guy wanted to sell the whole bit, not just some of it.  At a great price, why not?  But saving money never means saving time!  Truthfully though, it was a wonderful opportunity and the lumber will be used all over the house and probably on further buildings in the future.

Just getting started....

Sand and stones.....it's like a magnet for them!

It has been quite cool in the evenings here, so while the kids don’t mind heading up and helping for a bit, it’s not long before they’re miserable.  And bored.  Meticulously stacking lumber is not the most exciting thing to do.  Trust me.  But we’re getting there, and in no time it’ll be hanging on the walls of our new home!  In the meantime, it’s time to get out that winter wear……..
