Thought I should probably keep you updated on the status of things happening at Journeys End since one of you will win the Journeys End giveaway when I get just a few more followers.
So. The latest and greatest. Dad started building this gas fireplace thing. At the Ranch. For Journeys End. It’s guesstimated weight is around 1000 pounds. Dad, Davey and Josh somehow managed to get it off the saw horses and into Daveys truck and we arrived for the excitement of unloading it.
Dad built a gallows type deal over the truck,
then slowly drove the truck away.
And then six menfolk stared at it as it sat on the saw horses and pontificated on the best way to get it down. I waved my hand high in the air and when I was finally given the floor, suggested that they attach the dolly to the fireplace and then lower it to the ground.
I just love that moment when silence reigns and then folks start nodding heads and doing as I say. heh. Doesn’t happen too often, have to relish those moments.
So down came the fireplace and it scooted away to its final destination. Where the next head scratching moment came in place. How to get an 1000 lb object off a dolly without loss of limbs or utter back failure. Trust me, watching them lower the beast was stressful enough.
This is where the real genius enters with cousin Brad. If any of you solved the problem before seeing our solution, I give you 5 gold stars.
Oh whoops. A scenery shot. Wonder how that made it in here.
Back to the matter at hand…Wes learned a few tricks of the mortaring trade.
Isn’t that glass beautiful? Do believe it’s my favorite part.
