(I can put up with a lot of stuff, but I'm not putting up with that, thanks.)
So it's not a terrible thing that two trees fell on this house.
The problem is that we've been filling it up with the stuff for the new house. Someone was throwing out an unused woodstove. We envisioned a woodstove on our screened in back porch at our retirement house, so that thing came home with us and got stuck in the snakey house. Along with some furniture that had belonged to his mom that Tim wanted. And my butcher block. A french casement window we both fell in love with. A very cool exterior door. A friend was selling a very nice hickory kitchen. Two years ago a tree had dropped on his house. He decided as long as he was rebuilding, he'd redesign his kitchen. We liked those well built hickory cabinets and bought them off him. They got stuffed in that little house too. That boarded in front porch? That holds two four wheelers and a rototiller.
So our storage unit is full. While it is not terrible that two trees fell on it, we needed to maintain the integrity of that storage space until next summer. The tree was through the roof on one side, had splintered rafters on the other, and the back of the house was pushed in, with broken windows and a door knocked completely out of the wall and laying against the opposite wall.
We did some chainsaw work, put the door back in, propped it in place. Not much else you do can in the dark.
But it's an ill wind that blows no good. We went back up today. This is the root system of the pine tree blown over. The 'cave' is about 12 feet tall. I can't wait to get in there and start looking for artifacts!
Informal poll: If you buy a hickory kitchen from a man who had a tornado hit his house and knock a tree down on it, and then you bring those aforementioned cabinets to be stored in a house that has two trees blow down on it, would you consider the cabinets cursed and not install them in the new house?
