My Dad arrived and started to help Ryan install the cut trim.
Mistake #7: Prep the walls before you start installing trim in a 100 year old house.
Apparently, back in the day, they didn't attach the trim to 2x4's so, when we ripped out the old trim, there was nothing to attach the new trim to. Awesome. So my Dad and Ryan had to figure out a way to glue pieces of wood to the brick so that they could attach the molding to something. Set back number fifty million and one.
At this point, my sister and brother in law have showed up and Ryan had discovered that he needed a few more supplies. So while Kevin and Ryan head to the store, my sister and Dad put together our awesome new chiminea. Yay!
