Moving Right Along!

Roof is finished!
The walls are full of electrical wires, plumbing pipes, heating ducts, and vents.  After the last framing inspection and the "OK to insulate", the insulation people were here this week.
Meanwhile, Jimmy and Keith and Wayne are continuing on the outside - Doors, windows, trim, siding, soffits, etc. And Steve and his crew poured our front sidewalks yesterday and are working on framing up the back patio this week.  We've had such a wonderful talented bunch of guys working on this project that it almost inspires us to build another house. :)
On to sheetrock!

Time for a Roof!

Another truckload of material arrives - this time the metal roof - at 5:30 a.m. - Yikes, these delivery people get up early!
The roof has been covered for several days with the moisture barrier, so we haven't been stressing too much lately about rain!

All the interior walls are framed, the furnace ducting is in, the electrical stuff is all wired throughout the house, and the plumbing is roughed in throughout.  Ready for our framing inspection on Thursday, and insulation starting Friday or Monday.  
Metal roof going on this week - one skylite is in - a royal pain to install, but boy, does it bring in light!

Children and the Sand Pile

On Easter Sunday, we had a family gathering when we got all of Ron's boys and their families together. 

The older grandchildren decided to go for a walk in the woods.
 Ron, and our daughter-in-law from Salt Lake City, Anne, and I took the younger children for a walk too.
It was cool, so we started out in an assortment of sweaters and coats.
We ended up at the building site, and what child can resist a big pile of sand?
or a lovely mud puddle.....  In my defense, I always tell the mothers to not send their children to visit Grandpa and Grandma in their Sunday clothes.
We hosed them all down and found swimming suits for them and let them end their day in the hot tub.
