Maybe I accidentally littered recently. Maybe I didn’t pick up enough of Frankie’s “deposits”. Maybe I’m in trouble for missing one of Siri’s solstice parties. Whatever the case may be, I’m in trouble for something, because this is approx. what it looked like outside today:
The hot weather last week was too good to be true…
Oh well! I have been really lucky so far (weather-wise), and we need the water. So today I’ll just show you my new doorknobs instead of progress pics:
If you’d told me at this time last year that soon I’d have my own blog where I’d post pics of doorknobs… I’d never have believed you.
This morning the crane came to put the trusses upstairs and the ridge beam above my great room. (The ridge beam is what all of the rafters will be attached to.) North Mountain and the crane operator were finished in 2 hours… They really are amazingly skilled and talented people.
Everyday it looks more and more like a real house. Frankie and I’d better start packing!
North Mountain, being the ultimate troopers that they are, were on site today in the snow and the freezing, god-awful temps AGAIN, putting up my little house. I hope they know how much I appreciate them!
Bob of NM says I’m the boss now instead of Dad. I’m thinking of letting them take tomorrow off, since it’s gonna be 4 degrees in the morning… hmm… I’ll have to see how generous I feel in the morning…
This is so exciting! You can actually see the shapes and sizes of some of the rooms now. I know, I know. Every single stage of this project is the most exciting stage… but come on. This is really exciting!! You can see rooms!
Hmmm… I just reread what I’ve written, and it’s really hard to make any sense of my descriptions and pictures. I guess it’ll just be confusing for everyone until the drywalling starts! Oh well!
