Demolition madness! (with a lotta help from my friends)

Demolition has started. We have been tearing down just about everything. Fortunately I have wonderful friends who have broken their backs, punctured their flesh and generally made themselves miserable to bring this house some new life. First I would like to thank those who helped:

  • Emily Anleu (my wonderful girlfriend and biggest helper ever!)
  • Mike Livingston
  • Jeff Klug
  • Michael Parker
  • Clint
  • Eric Hall (of Avatar Training Studio)
  • Nick Buettner
  • Molly Green
  • Blake Darsow
  • Suzanne Pfeiffer

I am so thankful for all of your help!!!
