Here we go again!!

 We are now the proud owners of a dilapidated commercial building in Shaunavon, SK.  

It looks pretty bad right now and I'm not sure that we aren't crazy, but in my defense it is on 2 lots, downtown, and we bought it for next to nothing. 

I also think it looks worse because of the dreary day we had yesterday.  But it is ours and I am sure it is going to keep us busy for the foreseeable future.

The inside is a little better than the outside and once we gut it and fix the one corner where the sill rotted out things will all come together.

I am not sure that Tyler knows what he has gotten himself into.  He had the same look when we started fixing up the old house in Newellton, NS.

We have a little water problem in 2 places but when we climbed up into the attic, holy crow the trusses were in great shape and the roof hasn't started to rot at all.  So one of the first order of things will be to get the roofer in and tin the roof.  One of the advantages to living in a dry climate.

So let the fun begin.


  1. Yikes! The main thing I see is that it is better than having a boss! You two are good at sticking to it, so I will be interested to see the end result. Luck to you! Hugs,. Polly

  2. I think two love to fix old houses, (how many now), old warehouse. Well go for it because I know you can.
