The house

Ok so most of you know that we have been waiting a long time to build our house, and after many trials and set backs we finally got started. The last 5 or maybe it has been 6 weeks have been very busy and exhausting, but fun also. I don't know whatever possesssed me to let my husband build a house. I knew it would be a lot of work, but this is just crazy!!!

Of course we all knew there would be problems and set backs and the first problem to arise was the cement truck sinking!! Thankfully, another cement truck came and they were able to get him out.

Here is the progression. All was going well, we got the trusses on and some of the upstairs floor laid and then last sunday the winds came. All of the trusses over the garage came down. We have had so many setbacks that we actually took this all in stride. What's another set back at this point? I am sure there will be more to come.

Yesterday we pulled down all of the broken trusses over the garage. It was actually kind of fun and good therapy. (No wonder that on the home improvement shows everyone loves the demolition)
