Spelunking the Granary

This afternoon Cadence cleaned out all the stuff from under the granary in preparation for insulating under there. It's a pretty tight, dark space, that gets tighter the further you crawl in. Also a bit scary, which is why she chose to do it in the zero-degree weather --before the spiders and creepy-crawlies woke up from hibernation.

"That spelunking Class I took at Quarry Hill when I was a kid really came in handy!" she exclaimed when she crawled out, covered in cobwebs and dirt.

Here is some of the stuff she hauled out from beneath the granary--mostly old rusty cans and scraps of wood, but also two mysterious chairs on long metal poles--seats from an old ski-lift?

Cadence discovered a big old bowling pin under the granary, marked "Trophy" --her trophy for all that hard work.

Your blog is designed beautifully. I mistook the word grainery to be granny and was a bit confused for awhile.

Brave one, your gal! I think the bowling pin and weird chairlift chairs should definitely be worked into the final design in some fashion. :)

ski lift chairs or a carnival ride -- before the "osha" days! too cool.

I don't know if I would have Cadence's nerve! That looks pretty creepy to me...

Looks like it was a goo haul, though. :-)

Well, "goo" was supposed to read "good"--LOL!
