We can now let the cows out of the back pasture. Fence around the house is done.



Framing started today and starting to look like a house

we had to delay pouring the slab because of rain and got rain 3 days after on it. Heat showers everyday now.

Thankfully the doors should be easy. My wife has an uncle that owns a door company.

Sure can, Give me til tomorrow afternoon. I didn't stop out there on my way to work and it is dark after practice.

It is the scaffold set on top of a big pallet though. Tied to the forks and to the back.

Finally had some time off work and went to look at the progress. Guys are busting tail!

I imagine it will slow up this week as the 3rd guy that was helping them, passed away in a car accident this weekend. Very good friend of theirs. Sad situation on all parts.


Siding on the north side



Windows



Lights on back porch



Lights on front porch



Wall for wainscoat. Yes I want it all the way in the carport. Our road is heavily traveled and I want a little protection of whatís in the carport. I am going to my parents some time and getting some big rocks for the step



Carport and lights

Well we have had another hitch in our step. One of the guys fell off the roof and dislocated his knee cap, broke his tibia, and tore all the ligaments. He will be MIA for awhile. Luckily the other brother can do a lot of the inside work and I believe one of the son is going to help.

No telling on the move in date now but we are just glad it wasnít more serious. My father in law will go help and Iíll take some days here and there til football is over and go help.

Thanks. I have always wanted a big front porch and a huge carport and I got both those. Going to be nice to be able to sit outside and stay dry.

Neighbors bought us some nice rocking chairs for the front porch and we are going to purchase a couple more. Going to convert our dining room table now into an outdoor table for the porch as well.

Itís coming along and Iím hoping to be out there tinkering soon

Plan is to paint sometime next week.

Hard to see pictures it was late.
