Our story so far: We drew near a close to the drywall, paint and flooring phase of renovating a 126-year-old Methodist church into our dream home.

We hadn’t gotten rid of anything significant, except for layers of wood flooring while we sanded, since the demolition phase of renovation months ago. But we’d found an interested party for our old fire escape.
Tyler tried peddling off the fire escape to various potential buyers–anyone who had a second story was a potential buyer–but he met with little interest. Until he mentioned it to Reroofer, the agile young man who repaired the roof of our belfry and helped us insulate. Yeah, Reroofer said, he needed a deer stand.
OK, great way to recycle.
The deal required Reroofer to dismantle and haul away the two-story solid steel fire escape himself. Instead of viewing this as a burden, I think Reroofer found this prospect to be fun.
One Monday morning in August (so he had plenty of time before deer season to make modifications), Reroofer showed up with his truck and a buddy with a truck.
