More family, more friends, more work, more progress.

** I promise that Mr. B was not picking his nose when that picture was taken.

Many thanks, Mr. S!

First truss!

Guiding the truss

Thanks to Mr. N, S, and X for all your help! The truss installation has been brutal, but they stuck it out and we are just 2 away from being done!

      Thanks, Bethicus. It is amazing how much more house-like it feels with the roof. I’m also amazed at how much taller it is than I thought it would be đŸ™‚

    It’s looking great. Where is the old wood beam located in the house?
    (first 2 pics).

    That one will be exposed between the two windows that will go over the kitchen counter. We put in another one that will be the corner of the front porch. Both of them are from the demolished building.
