Every time I make a payment on my second mortgage it’s hard because I don’t see a new kitchen or bathroom as being something to show for the cost. But when I see images like this and remember how it used to look, I’m satisfied with the money I’ve spent on mitigation.

I over estimated how much wood I needed for the winter of 2013-14 and Paul came up to split wood so I could give a cord away to a friend.

My goal is to have it completely empty by summer to help reduce the fire danger and Paul helped whittle it down a bit.
