2 August 2009 — NW PA Woods

I haven't done much work on the house lately, but have been helping some friends build a brick oven and move some rocks around. Mostly, I've been helping with moving the rocks around and pouring some concrete as the oven is their baby.

Most of this work was done in June, July and the first week of August.

16 August 2009 — Cutting Down Some of the NW PA Woods

More fun in the NW PA woods. With the help of a friend (whose former primary business was cutting down trees) we cut down, chopped up, and stacked three problem trees.

As you can see, one of the trees was just inches away from a building on the property, so it was nice to have someone around with some experience.

Somehow I forgot to take a picture of the second tree and the resulting massive pile of wood. Then, I also forgot to take any good pictures of the nearly finished oven, but you can see it in the background of the last shot above. I will definitely get some more shots of that later this week.
