a new resident...

Well this is the new resident, she has been living in the new house by herself for the last 2 weeks. We don't know where she came from, but she seems to have adopted us. She is really smart and loving....Bubba says we have to keep her. Hmmmm. D & B

To the studs!

Since the left side is framed up, it is now time to tear out the right side. To the studs and stripped down. D & B

Rafters & Wall siding

So the rafters and the ceiling joice's are up and the siding is put on. Soon the decking will go on and she will be 'In the dry' D & B

Trim up the trees!

You can barely see him, but there is a man in the tree. He is cutting off the lower branches so we have a better view. He will be back to take out a tree in the front yard. D & B

The men worked all day removing the sides and rafter. By the end of the day, the house had been cut in half so that the trailer can be pulled out! It will be a nice place when we are finished. (If I keep saying it, it will come true!) D & B

The new back porch poles are in the ground!
