Still snowing, still slow going!

Well, a new snow storm every week to ten days has kept progress slow the past several weeks. The kids are now three days over their snow day allotment at school (meaning three days to make up at the end of the year) and we are further than that behind schedule on the house.

Adam almost made it all the way around the perimeter with the post structure, until the last storm blew two of the beams back down (see right, third picture from top).

He will most likely spend most of this coming weekend shoveling off the slab AGAIN to give himself someplace to build the remaining structural walls.

IN the meantime, Aurelia celebrated her eighth birthday on February 3, right in the middle of a storm as well! We had to postpone her cross-country ski party until this coming Monday, February 18 (President's Day)!

Stay tuned and stay warm!
