So, About That Junk In The Woods…

Oct 10, 2014 | Renovation

Phase one of junk-metal removal has begun: so far, a giant dumpster-full, plus this rusted steel piled in the manure bunker. Other treats in the woods include cans and broken glass, a vine-tangled manure spreader, a mini-fridge with a tree growing out of it, a rusted harrow dating from colonial times, and a giant rusted cylinder that Philip says is the stern of a World War II U-Boat. (Emily calls it The Fuselage.)

Good thing Alan’s here with his excavator, dump truck and backhoe. As Emily said, “I’ll take the bathtub with a side of tetanus.”
