Roof Progress!




Although we haven't had quite the beautiful September weather we were hoping for (lots of lingering thunderstorms in the afternoons), Adam has managed to complete construction of the underlayment of the shed roof over the main portion of the house!





The "underlayment" is plywood in this case, which will be covered with felt and then our light green metal roof will go on top of that.







The fascia board is the hardest part to put up, as it is awkward to hold in place as it's being nailed, and one is often high in the air while doing this. Adam and Andy have done a great job of getting it in place and perfect, though Andy hasn't been available as much as Adam had hoped.

Labor Day Weekend




Well, summer went out like it came in, very stormy and blustery.

Andy was out of town, so Adam took the kids to the fair on Saturday where they met up with some friends from school.

He got a little bit done on Sunday amid the thunderstorms.

Therese worked at the country club all weekend (again).

September should be a really nice month, weather-wise, so we're hoping for more progress later in the month.
