Our children had mixed reviews on us moving and buying such a fixer upper. Some thought it was awesome, some thought we were a little crazy, some couldn't believe we were moving farther away, some were sad to think that we would be selling the only home that they had ever known. BUT all were excited to tear things apart!! We scheduled a demolition day for the next Saturday and told them to come join us. We packed the tools and bought and rented a few more. We rented a very large dumpster and had it delivered the day before. We packed a cooler with lunch fixings and everyone's favorite drinks and went south for a Demo Party. Wahoo!!!
Our son, Zach, our daughter, Leslie and her husband, Alex came. Our teenage son, Chanse and his friend, Bryson came to help also. Chanse and Bryson went down Friday night to spend the night in the house and do a little gun shooting in the hills. I gave them the key to the house and they loaded their vehicle with sleeping bags, cots and treats and off they went. When they got there I had given them the wrong key and they were locked out. They tried all the windows until they found one they could wedge open and climb in. We were glad to know which one needed reinforced. The house had a few uninvited visitors in the previous weeks and we thought we had it all secured. Anyway, several minutes later the sheriff showed up at the front door (good to know he was watching). They explained what the situation was, he checked their ID's and told them to have a good time.
And the demolition began . . . .
