|Our last view of the old dinette and couch set up....say goodbye kitties!|
First stop was to Bradd & Hall Inc. They removed the couch and as luck would have it, were able to remove the dinette section as well, which made things go much quicker for Carlyle later in the afternoon. Because the cats hide behind the couch, we had to prevent that option and sequester them in the bedroom. Here is George in his new man-cave.
Then they began removing the dinette. What a difference it makes when you know where the screws are hidden and have the right tools...and young backs.
Since we had some time to spend between jobs we found a local dive that lacked decor, but made up for it with real mashed potatoes and their own homemade cucumber salad and tartar sauce. Then it was time for a drive through Amish country to reach Focal Woods for the dinette portion of our remodel.
|A common site on these roads, there is even a bike and buggy lane in downtown|
We arrived at Carlyle's house just before 1:00, as scheduled. You see a lot of hitching posts in this part of Indiana. I cannot show you photos of our craftsman, as the Amish shun having their photos taken.

|I'm almost out.....just a little further....nope, the chest and belly are too big.|
