Haven't tackled the Pit yet. No I'm talking about the Money Pit. Well maybe it will be. I'm talking about the pit in our Floor where the fire started. There is a big hole and it's filled with junk. Anyone got a backhoe?
Hey, says on yer blog you are cleaning it out by hand. Why not put up a swingset-like structure made of 2x4s and use a pulley or block and tackle to lower a large pallet, bucket or wheelbarrow pan down there? Load it and hoist it up. If you get a cheapo H-F electric winch, it could rise at the flip of a switch. Might be easier, not too costly to do.
