With the hard news of an upcoming redeployment to Iraq for Matt, we've launched into getting that roof on with a vengeance...
We hired some help from a local contractor for the past few days, as well as from a neighbor who happened by, and we're pretty much ready for a roof now, after today. All the rafters--even the tricky ones over the back end of the house--are ready. The plywood for the roof is on the second floor, and things are lookin' good.
Dad and I put some of the thick plywood we'd used for concrete forms on the back deck rafters, as a temporary deck. It's swell out there. And now it's much easier to reach the back of the house!
Josh came up today, too, and did a bunch of good things, including finally bolting some of the walls together. He's good with a router, as it turns out.
We enjoyed some soup with meatballs from Matt's deer today--it's good to share warm things on this chilly days! Thankfully, the sun warmed us, and the wind was still.
