Philip has a gift of seeing what something can be, not what is might actually be. He was called to a tree job to remove a tree that has fallen on a shed. He agreed to the job and asked if they wanted him to remove the damaged shed as well. They agreed and he carefully dissembled the three undamaged sides of the shed to repurpose them on Kowalski Mountain. We were planning a large family camping trip on the homestead and wanted to provide additional bathroom facilities to our guests, outside of our RV. The salvaged walls of the shed were going to get a new look to become the start of a bathhouse.
Team Work Makes it Happen
It was quite a job to get these walls into position and stabilized. As usual, the bobcat was instrumental in allowing the two of us to accomplish such a big job.
Working together, the bathhouse slowly began to take shape.
Muddy Working Conditions Doesn’t Stop this Shed from Getting a New Look
Working in such muddy conditions did slow our progress and prevented us from completing the project. We did need to secure the three walls and cover the bathhouse to protect it from the weather until we can get the room and the fourth wall completed.
Roxie, our supervisor, is always close by, keeping an eye on our progress.
We will cover the structure with tarps and continue to chisel away at this project over the next several workcations.
Jump to the next stage of construction.
