the view from the second floor

Here's where we were when we started work last Saturday; Matt and Dad had gotten many of the joist hung for the second floor. But, that *large* pile of lumber was still looming in the distance...

After much lumber pile unstacking and hauling, we got some of the plywood that'll be the second floor up there. Matt R hauled a whole lot, but still looks happy, eh? (The view's not bad from the second floor, either!)
In mid-afternoon, we took a break for some salsa and chips on the second floor. Our first meal upstairs, I suppose...
Emily and Jen were gluing and nailing the plywood, so it's good to see them enjoying the floor, too. :)
We also put some of the sheathing on the front of the house. (If you look closely, you can see the second story floor, too!)

Since this picture, Matt, Phil and Dad finished the floor (yesterday), and are up again today working on the second story walls. It'll be fun to see them!
