« Part 4: Anyone want any? Part 5 of Knotty Pine series no next part

I took two days off work and drove back to my Grandpa’s this weekend in an effort to complete the de-construction of the house and salvage all of the Knotty Pine and Ash that I could.

I just got to town when I called Grandpa and he informed me that he decided to leave the house standing and use it as storage for the farm.

Crap – I wasted a weekend. Oh well, what ever he wants to do is fine with me. I guess Dad and I will go fishing instead – maybe not such a waste of a weekend after all.

We did go back to the house today and worked most of the day. I now have all of the Ash I can get without the building becoming unstable. Also have all of the pine from the interior walls and ceiling.

There is still close to a thousand board feet of the pine left on the exterior walls (interior side) that I can get, but now that the building is not coming down anytime soon, I’ll leave it there. I can always get more now and do not have to be in a hurry.

Once I get home and get my wood rack build, I’ll post of a picture of the haul.

For those that had contacted me about buying some of the lumber, I now have no Ash for sale and the Pine we’ll just have to discuss.
