Now, where was I?

We still had our house in town for sale, and were living in the RV in the front yard at the ranch. We decided to take the rebuilding in stages.

The first stage was to tear it up. It took a whole year, while we were waiting for our house in town to sell, to demolish the old and start rebuilding the new.

It was sort of satisfying, but really sad too - we knew that the first owners of this house had built it them selves, evenings and weekends, and here we were, tearing it down. But it had to be done. The walls were infested with termites and twice, someone fell through holes in the floor.
