The Storage building

(Pictures interspersed of progress today)

We are fortunate  to have several places here in Belmont, NC. There are three properties here that have Motor home hook ups. Since our son is renting this house utilities included, we feel more at ease using the water and electric, when we stop by. Last year we installed the large MH port and paved the drive to it.

Now, we are building a large storage building, and attaching it to the existing metal storage building.  We plan to fit it out with a washer/Dryer to use while we sit here. Our Motorhome washer/dryer combo is nice, but takes very small loads.

We have some ‘stuff’, a Bed room and dining room suites we need to get out and see what shape they are in. Along with dishes, pots/pans, bed clothes some tools, a desk, filing cabinets and only the Lord could know what else, it has been stored in the woods in a trailer for 12-13 years, The snakes and rats have co existed in there.

Soooo, the storage building is gonna help us free up a tractor/trailer trailer. and allow us to inventory what we have.

We plan a huge yard sale, after going thru our STUFF.  now you know the rest of the story.  We own the home, it is rented to our son, who so far has paid the rent. And this is our resting place for a couple months of the year, where we see our sons, some of the grand kids and one great grand daughter.  I hope to be able to show the completed storage building in a couple days.

Thanks for coming by the Log.

I guess if you've been living without that "stuff" you won't miss it if you sell or dispose of it. The building is going to look nice with the white.

Out of sight, out of mind. If you haven't used it in a year, you probably don't need it. You'll have a HUGE garage sale, I sure. Building is looking good. That siding is nice. Wonderful you get to spend time with your sons and grandchildren and great granddaughter. SAVOR each moment until you are on the road again. take care.

It looks great and I can't believe how fast the work is getting done there. It's wonderful you have this spot to store things. It'll be a lot better than the storage trailer for you. A great improvement for sure. Have a super Saturday!

Things are coming right along and fast too. I am sure you will enjoy your new space.
Don't talk about clearing out "stuff"! Reminds me of what I am doing...lol.

We have been upgrading a rental... floors and walls. It is all done now.

You guys are flying with that work. You will probably end up just storing that stuff in the new building and not yard selling any of it. You and Sherry won't have time to do that for soon away you will go again.

I say you 2 are often preternaturally relaxed because you don't have most of that stuff with you. ~Mary

I live in a Condo owned by my
brother it also has hook-ups. He
feels better at his new place,
because I have to many tall trees
and in a storm could fall.

Building looks good. I thought
I would see Stella's picture since
she made another visit. I thought
I was at Grand-Central-Station
the other day you had so much
company. LOL
