November 3, 2005 – Bricks for Tots

Out behind the barn are all the bricks from the old chimney we destroyed in one phase of house remodeling. (ok, so there’s still about five feet left in the basement). It was an ugly dusty job, but we gained another two feet of counter space in the kitchen. The bad part was that it required four rooms to lose part of their walls and hauling them down two flights of stairs from the attic. The good news was two of the rooms were being reconfigured anyways.

Martin has discovered the pile and is “building” structures. He has the floor built and is starting on the walls.

He will spend an hour or more there under the right conditions – arranging and planning. He has even moved a Tonka truck down to help with the moving!
