Root Cellar Creation: Part 2

Jeremy said, “Let us frame in this space.” And Aimee said, “If you say so.” And so Jeremy and Aimee went to Scherer Lumber to purchase 24 Forestry Council Certified 2x4s and two un-certified treated 2x4's for the nailers.
Aimee said, “How will you cut these down to size?” And Jeremy said, “I will borrow a saw.” And so he did borrow a massive 24" compound mitre saw from a neighbor.

Jeremy put nailers in the floor and studs were attached to this. In this way, two walls were built.

And then Jeremy said, “Let us run over to The ReUse Center and find a door for the cellar.” And Aimee said, “Sounds good to me.” The perfect door was purchased and installed, just so.

Many evenings and mornings passed, and it was the second step done. Aimee and Jeremy looked at their work and saw that the door was really cute.

This is like a Biblical story- even with the submissive wife saying, "Let it be as you say."!

yeah, that's what it's like around here, especially when it comes to anything related to food. ;-)

I have to say that Jeremy's choice of footwear for remodeling is highly unusual.

Aimee said...

yes, fashionable, isn't he? They're just a dumpy old pair of shoes, but of course they used to be nice shoes so they are a bit incongruous with the rest of the outfit.
