If there was a bright side to doing the roof–beyond rain not seeping into our house, of course–it was the garbage bin that we ordered.
We took advantage of every cubic metre of our 40-yard bin to do a major clean up in the barn, the fields and even the house.
The indoor pool was the last room we cleaned out, hence the pool noodles and solar blanket. Can I just ask why you need a solar blanket on an indoor pool?
Underneath all of that are the shingles, the leather barn couch and numerous other treasures I was quite happy to say goodbye to.
The final tally was 10,780.5 pounds, which equates to 4.89 metric tonnes, 5.39 tons or “freakin’ heavy” in Matt’s words–and a huge weight off my mind.
Anyone else out there find cleaning cathartic? This blitz was particularly rewarding, I think, because most of the junk belonged to past owners.
