Thank you to this pine tree for making its way through my home last March. March 1 to be exact. It was a lovely morning. I sat working quietly in my office 4 months pregnant. Greg was unemployed at the time and he was in the Den working hard at networking and looking for a new job. (Which he did find thank goodness). When all of a sudden we heard a loud crack getting louder and louder and then BAM! The whole house just shook! We grabbed the dog and went running outside for fear of it falling further into our home.
A home that needed some updating. It was built in 1959. While it had good bones (it held up a giant tree after all), however, pink tile in the bathroom was a bit....um... dated. So in a way I am thankful for this tree falling through our house. Yes it caused stress. But it also kept me quite occupied while eagerly awaiting the arrival of our daughter.
The root ball and my bump. I was thankful that I could sneak in on this warm day to get into some cooler clothes.
Cutting the tree into moveable pieces
Princess watched anxiously. She wanted to be sure her sofa was unharmed so she could go back to snuggling.
That's going to hurt.
And it made it way all the way across the house. And even managed to damaged Greg's car, too.
The tree is coming off of the house!
Architectural Digest here we come! Check out the blue tarp roof. So trendy.
First up...the hall bathroom...
