Pre – Burn

 

In twenty four hours this will be gone. Gone. Up in a blaze.

Until several weeks ago it was the rented home of a friend. But like so many things in the Ozarks it was seeping back into the ground upon which it stood. It was melting back to its’ origins. Sagging floors, drafty windows, leaky faucets and the magical hold the Ozark weather has on aging structures was bringing this abode to the final days.

In the spirit of honor a planned burn will complete the task within a few hours and in a safe manor.

In the meantime salvage of usable parts and pieces, tubs, and tanks, windows and wainscoting are near done today. The roofers are the last team to dismantle, removing  the shingles as they are toxic if burned.

    I love that style of architecture ! The walls did talk through your beautiful pictures albeit bittersweet.
    Sarah thank goodness you were there with your camera. Bless all those who helped salvage
    some of the bits & pieces.

    kitty, i love that you are honoring this dwelling & space with the burn! i am assuming it will be a a a sort of ceremony with prayers, gratitude ( celebration. (like a wake? ). i miss my own tiny ozark dwelling and had much grief with the loss of it. your bright terra cotta walls are the same color i use now where i live. (i knew we have been riding on the same vibe.). peace, cindy dawson.
