This renovation will give us a lot more room to work in the main food and ice cream area as well as a little area for a desk and some chairs for those rainy days when we are taking a break. Of course Grace got to set up her toys first because we need to get some flooring in there before we start moving freezers and building shelves.
Because we won't be using the shack in the winter so insulation is not a factor, I felt that some skylights will make the area nice and light in the summer and we won't need lights to see in there. As you can see the skylights are working well and there is ample sunlight coming through.
Our contractor doesn't drive a fancy rig, but it gets the job done.
This was not all our stuff. The kids had lots to sell too!!
The kids always enjoy Gramma's shack food. Nicole and Abby, Silas and Emma joined us as well.

And Grace and I had to make sure the rescue boat still runs. It did fine.
Some of you may question why there are so many pictures of our grand daughter Grace and not as may of our other grandkids. That is because she lives a couple miles from us so she has the opportunity to be here lots. The other grandchildren are not as close and only get to visit us on occasion. Oh and here is a picture down the lane by the Ponderosa and yes that is Grace riding her bike.
And Grace getting a drink of water from a tap. It was fun to teach her how to run the water down her cheek and into her mouth. Do you remember drinking water like this as a kid? I sure do.
Oh yes, and Grace at the spider tree!!
