This is the one sunny day we have had since Thanksgiving, it seems! I have certainly had my fill of dark rainy days.
Here is all that has been done on the construction. The shop has the roof and windows in, and is scheduled to get the concrete floor poured this week. Then they can put on the two big garage doors, and the siding, along with the wiring and lights. David plans to put a wood stove right away as well. He has 2 or 3 stacks of wood he cut when cleaning up the low limbs of the big trees. Our contractor has promised us that the shop will be done by the end of January. The house is getting a slow start. They have put up the Post and Beam for the floor, as you can see from the pictures. The big round cement pads are the pilings for the wrap-a-round porch. David says the beams are around 4x10 or something like that. Looks fairly sturdy! Now we are waiting for the plumber, and heat duct guy to get their part done. Then the builders can start putting up the framing for the walls.
I realized it was time to put in for my vacation in July, at work. I hope the house will be done by then! We are so looking to getting in the house, but also looking forward to going fishing up at Crescent Lake this summer! Well, spring is around the corner, as my daffidills I planted up the lane are showing green shoots up 4-6 inches. I can't wait for more sunshine. Hope to see you all sometime this year!
