House Progress

Just a little update on the house. Today as I was sewing, Richard was working on the house. He got a couple beams up so that we can start putting down the 2x6's for the upstairs. Then on top of the 2x6's we will be putting down the subfloor. He got all of the beams up except for one and it was a 20 ft long beam, so it was VERY heavy. It was funny because it took me, Richard, and my sister to get it up there. I think tomorrow he is going to up some of the 2x6's down.

These beams will be showing on my ceilings. I really love the rustic look, so that is what I wanted.

This is a photo that I took while I was outside helping Richard. This is Bullet just being nosey! He likes to come over and keep an eye on things while we are working on the house.

As you can see, we still don't have any SNOW! I guess I am being a child, but I want snow!

You can have all of the snow you want from us. The house is coming along nicely.

Send a cooler. I'll send you some!

It's so neat to see the progres on your house. Those beams are going to look really cool. Will they stay that color or will you stain them?

Thank you so much for sharing all the joys and trials of your life with us.... I just love reading what you've been up to and how your quilts are growing.

Consider yourself and your family {{{HUGGED }}} by a complete stranger - you help brighten my days!

I hope that 2008 will be full of health and happiness for you all!

You have been a busy lady in reading your recent posts. I have been reading them - but not commenting as I have been on the sick list the past few days. This cold I took has knocked me for a loop.

As always I enjoy reading about the latest at "the house of Kristi".
