Remember my treehouse that wants to be an auxiliary office?
Well it just got one step closer - Clark's dad came and worked his engineering magic and fixed the electrical. The electricity hasn't worked in ages - years? - and we assumed it was because of the spot we found where a lawnmower had clearly run over the (supposed to be buried) electrical line and mangled it. I mean, that felt like a safe assumption of the problem. And while it was definitely part of the problem, it certainly wasn't the whole problem - as evidenced by the fact that we still had no power once that line was fixed. Some sleuthing led to the discovery that the line had also been pulled out of the auxiliary electrical box - probably so no one would try to use it since the line was in mangled pieces in yard? So both of those problems were addressed, and we now have power. Yay Clark's Dad!
With the biggest problem fixed, we can now move on to some smaller scale issues. Such as... cleaning out the old kid stuff, bigger windows, paint, floor, desk, workspace, heat. You know, basically everything. But things that can be fixed on the weekends, with some elbow grease.
Here are the befores:
And hopefully before too long, I'll have some afters. But here's the view from the tiny porch. I cannot *wait* for this to be my tiny office.
