We scoured the junkyard yesterday. Looking for trim, beams, boards, flooring, doors, windows, all the bits and pieces that will lend The Coupe (the Tiny House we are building) its character. What I find here is sturdy, solidly built, made from good heart timber and of course cheaper. Real. Here you have a look too! Do you need anything?
Good morning. You know there is a difference between wanting and needing. Though I find it hard to tell the difference sometimes. Although this was supposed to be an exploratory mission, so The Kiwi Builder could see what was there and start his list, Our John just had to take this phone home.
Good morning. The man who has rescued all this stuff saves barns and old houses, he takes them down bit by bit, while the farmers stand by with their gas cans and matches saying, hurry up, get a move on, I need to burn this damn thing down and bury it before the plantin’. But Rick is a methodical man, he works at his own saintly pace, he goes about his recovery business with care and knowledge, everything comes out whole, he is not a smasher and grabber. He also has a problem leaving anything behind so when we say junk yard we really mean Junk Yard!
All the wood is numbered and stored in a great big shed, and everything is for sale.
Fantastic isn’t it. I will go back later this week with the list. Then my work begins, there will be cleaning and sanding and oiling! My turn to get my hands into the work.
Have a lovely day.
