Well this weekend we finally got around to it. Hooked it up to the truck with a tow strap & was able to move it to an area away from things.

Guess it was a little close to this dead tree then it should have been.

Not much left the next morning. Dead tree was still smoldering. 1000x improvement.

Got the area all cleaned up. Must have been a million nails of every size in shape left after the fire. Now all we have to do is get some grass planted.

Hard to believe but next week will mark the 5th anniversary of the closing date on the lake house. Not sure where the time went. It has been alot of fun but I am glad some of the jobs are behind us. We don't have that many remaining projects & house is 100% usable.

The time has gone by fast for me as well - I would have guessed that it has been only 2 or 3 years.

Thanks for sharing your project with us, I have enjoyed following the progress.

Took a few minutes & reread complete thread from the beginning. Hard to imagine how far we have come.

Here is a funny one. Got a letter in the mail from the tax assessors office. They have reduced our accessed value on the property. Net result is a reduction in our annual tax bill by $100. Reason for reduction - removal of structure - the shed!!!! Almost fell over laughing. Should have burned it down 4 years ago. Apparently they use a computer program that compares satellite images to see if people try to sneak new buildings up & without permits to avoid taxes. In our case they picked up the removal of the structure.

Well this weekend we finally got back to work on the lake house again. Bad weather & other commitments had delayed our any attempts to get down earlier this year. One of the big projects we want to get done before summer gets here is redo of the upstairs bathrooom. When we first got the house we need a quick fix replacing toilet, vanity, sink, faucet & threw in a peel & stick vinyl floor to make it usable while we concentrated efforts elsewhere. Its finally time to do it right. Had an 30" x 34" fiberglass shower stall. Ripped that out & going to expand the shower to 48" x 34" by stealing some space from the hall closet. Next trip going to put in new shower base, move plumbing, durarock & maybe tile. Next trip durarock floor of backroom & ceramic tile. Should be nice improvement
