Punching out the punch list on Camp Dularge! — 12 Comments

  1. Everyone who contributed in helping with Camp Dularge’s renovations deserves a BIG pat on the back! Wed., Hubby and I dropped in on BW and BB while they were hard at work putting on the finishing touches. BW, the photos are good, but they don’t do the place justice. Hubby was impressed with all that’s been done. I wish y’all could SMELL the “Pecky Cypress”. I love the smell of wood! I guess that’s one of the reasons I like to carve.

  2. Wow, Im ready to move in!!! Oh…guess I will settle for a weekend stay, will have to check my schedule and try to set a date before you are all booked up. BW, It really looks fantastic, I am so amazed at the work you and all your helpers have put into that place (and it really shows!!!). My hat off to you, hon. And to date, I can honestly report,
    1) I HAVE SEEN NO WORKER HARMED DURING THIS RENOVATION.
    2) ALL OF HER CHILDREN, HER SPOUSE & THE HOUSE CRITTERS ARE ALL ACCOUNTED FOR., BUT FUNNY I HAVENT SEEN THAT 1ST CONCRETE GUY ANYWHERE.
    3) i DUNNO WHY THAT PURDY FLOWER BED WAS PLACED IN THAT BACK CORNER…….
    IM KIDDING…IM K I D D I N G YALL. Have to tease BW a little here and there to keep her on her toes!!

  3. It’s beeeeyooootiful! I am so proud of you, BW! There are not many people (man or woman) who could do what you have done with such equanimity even after all the setbacks.

    The bayou people are a tough bunch and you are right there with them – I don’t think they can call you a yankee anymore. LOL!

    Daddy would be so proud, and don’t you know how he would have enjoyed being right there with you helping. I’m looking forward to being there in a few weeks, but it’ll be weird if you don’t have any work for me to do!

    Luv ya! LilSis.

  4. Been reading this blog for too long. 2 for 1 sale at Lazy boy coming home next week. And stuffed a big old storm door in the Vue for ride home today.

  5. Wow, wow, wow! This is just too great!!! The flowers are so lovely, and the touches are perfect. You’ve created a place people are going to flock to!

    Well, well, done, Wendy!!!

    Love to you!

    P.S. What’s your next project to tackle? Knowing you, there is a next project in the works! 🙂

    • Well, first I have to take care of some legal business. Then I will start preparing my land for our personal home. I hope to get that job done with as much fervor but more finesse and with less error than I did the cypress house!! I learned many valuable lessons that will help me in contracting our home. I will also be putting out a call to volunteers along the way, so if you know of anyone who has been just itching to come down here and help with “recovery”, well this is a double whammy from Rita and Ike for us. We started planning and getting estimates in 2004, then Rita set us way back in 2005, and the rest is current events. We can use help from the ground up! (And I have a couple book ideas brewing around in the old noggin’ too!) Love back atcha, Vance!
