raisin' the roof... day two!

I just left Julian and thought everyone might like to see how the garage is taking shape on day two. I didn't have a camera, but used my nifty cell phone to do the trick =)

raisin' the roof

Today, we worked on the garage roof--with the help of our neighbors and a crane.

Emily helped make necessary measurements for vertical posts.

Matt climbed up to put the beam in place.

Dad supervised as the beams went up.

I sat in the shade. And in the sun. And in the window. It was my day off on the site...

Emily was in charge of hooking the beams to the crane.

Lunch was tasty (as always).

Ryan helped trim the beam that wasn't quite right.

The funny shape of the garage roof came together, as the beams came up.

We celebated Nona's upcoming birthday with some cake she baked. Happy 81st, Nona!
