With our official building and demo permit in hand, we started building our temporary living quarters in the back yard which our neighbor Matt calls, 'Shantytown'.
we salvaged as much as possible from the house, the general idea is a sleeping/clothing hut, a kitchen, a hang out space, and using the two sheds that came with the property for storage and a tool shed.

The end of the house

Where to even begin?
the last month has been so sad with the death of my mom and so happy with the wedding of two of my best friends.
so where do I place tearing down our house? at first it was in the sad category, but the minute the wrecking ball hit, it was in the oh, so happy category.
so here's some reasons why we had to tear down....(oh, and the foundations were sitting on grade, I guess the old owners didn't know there was such a thing as frost in Canada???)

we had to dismantle the crappy little house as much as we could to save time and money and move once again after having settled in for 2 months

and so we leave the house with the last batch of morels for the year
