Not Quite Before & After Photos

Here are a few photos to illustrate our progress so far. The picture below was taken just before we bought the tiny house in Atlin, BC.

The second picture was taken shortly after we bought the Little Blue House in July 2012. Other than a little brush-clearing, we hadn't done any work on the place at that point. The house, built during the Gold Rush of 1898, was settling back into the ground. The foundation was in need of a complete overhaul.

Lastly, I took the last photo in late September, 2013, after the house was jacked up to a level position. People walking or driving past the LBH almost always slow down or stop to check out its progress. The other day, I overheard a woman driving say to her passenger, "Wow! That must cost a fortune!" Well, yes it does.

We are impatient for the foundation work to be completed before the snow flies, which will be any day now. Our contractor assures me that they will finish up this phase of the project this week. We'll see about that! But for now, when I look at these pictures, I feel that we've saved the place from falling down.
