So apparently there is a 5 foot by 6 foot window that weighs about 1,000 pounds I need to take out of the wall in the kitchen. It used to be an outside window until the "Arizona room" was added on. What is that you ask? Well my northern friends let me tell you. It's a basically a 3 seasons room that actually gets used all season. Not really a problem with snow down here.
Well at least it only took me two hours to get it out. The window was screwed, glued, and built in place. I had to take my time pulling everything apart so I didn't break the frame or glass. This allowed Katie and I to throw it on top of Shirley and drop it off at the local Habitat for Humanity. It's a win-win. They get to re-sell the window and we don't have to figure out how else to get rid of it.
On our way back from dropping off the window we swing by Home Depot to pick up some supplies. Shirley gets a few sheets of drywall and some 2x4's thrown on the roof. This is a first for me. I havealwayshad a truck when going to the lumber yard. Now I'm "that guy" who straps crap to the roof. Well it's what we have and it works.
After getting everything unloaded we decide to call it a day. I'll tackle framing and drywall tomorrow. Eli gets a quick whistle and he jumps into Shirley without a complaint. We are getting ready to leave and I see Grandma's neighbor watering her rocks. HER ROCKS. She must have come from a place where there was grass. Old habits are hard to break.
