There was one casualty: a dwarf blueberry bush. It looks dead, but we're hoping the move just caused it to go dormant way early. I guess we'll see.
So yesterday the building permit was finally obtained (after a few hoops to jump through and a change in plans). That meant that at 6:30 a. m. yesterday, the work began. This was a surprise to us, and many awoke to the sounds of large power tools against bricks. The noise reverberated through the entire house, and by the end of Day 1, our home was changed!
|End of Day 1 progress--bricks removed|
|Day 1 by-product-- huge pile of bricks for building forts (according to the kids)|
