The Brook

I don't have any new house pictures but I thought I would show you some pictures of the brook across the road from our house. I think it is called Halls Brook. Alex took these pictures. He loves anything to do with water. The sound of the brook from the house is really calming.

Day 5, May 15

Here are the photos I took at the last build I went to on May 15. That day we, I should say everyone else got the plywood put on the roof. I made it up into the attic area but could not get out onto the roof. I uploaded the pictures wrong so this is where we finished for the day. The dining room and the porch just have rafters over them.

This picture was to prove to Gary that I actually did climb up the ladder and make it to the attic area. I did help pass the plywood through to the people on the roof.

Here, they are putting the plywood on the first side of the house.

Here was the start of the plywood.

The next 2 pictures show the workers putting in the last of the rafters over the main part of the house.

Debbie has taken pictures of the work that was done when I couldn't make it to the site, so I have more stuff to put up of the house. I just need to sort through them and get them ready to put up. I'm feeling better but not 100 percent yet, so I'm hoping to start helping out again soon. I might not be able to do much but it's so frustrating not to be able to help out at all!

Quick Hi!

Hi everyone! Just wanted to let you know that I am still here. I ended up in the hospital for 2 weeks. I had my gall bladder removed and then had some complications. I have been home for a week now and am slowly getting my strength back. It has been frustrating not being able to get out and help with the house. The progress on the house is amazing!! My friend, Debbie, has been out working on it and has taken pictures. I will get pictures up as I am able. Hopefully it won't take me too long to catch up.
