Final Ridge Beams!

Those are some BIG beams. What do you mean you need a crane?

Nothing like the right tool for the right job.

It was cold this morning.
Frank and Josh placing the "big" one.

Careful, Frank, don't get knocked off. You remember what happened to Bruce?

View facing East.

Tower is taking shape.
View looking South.

The whole bannana!
From the front, facing South.

The other side of the bannana.

Yeah, rafters! Might still get a roof on before summer! What a concept.

From the Beginning...


I know honey, let's tear down the house!

Uh-oh! I didn't really mean it!

Now what did we do?


Home Sweet Home! Just a couple months you say. I sure hope so.........


I know, let's get a puppy while we are living in the trailer for a little comic relief....


Maybe we need to finish the gargage. This trailer is getting smaller every day.


Looking good. When can we move in?
Hey, is that the pine from the old house?

Who is that hunk of burning love?

How quickly they grow up...


Maybe we should get moving on the rest of the house before the winter is upon us.


Wow, looking good!


I see walls, now let's make them stand up.

Ah, that's better...Sure would be nice to have a roof before it starts raining...

Stay tuned....
