The 20 beautiful rock columns were complete, so it was time to get going. I need a roof over my head people.
I have grown tired of camping out, even though I now have a small, and I mean small, camper to sleep in. I complained so much that my sweet husband bought a 1970 something trailer from our good friends, gutted it and made a queen size bed on one side and a twin on the other, that is all that fits in there. I told you it was small.
No more sleeping on an air mattress on the ground that inevitably will lose the majority of its air during the night. They really don't make those air mattresses tough enough for 2 little boys.
Big Buckaroo and his dad put the first board on and away we went. They even let me use the screw gun. Thankfully, the bits that go on those things are not that expensive because I kept stripping them.
By the end of three days (it drizzled rain the majority of the time) we had all the floor joists/girders complete and the two decks complete (this picture only shows one of the decks).
We are ready for sub-flooring which will be done this weekend by Big Buckaroo.
Everyone is invited, free food and campsite in the mountains. All you need is some muscle and cool power tools (generator provided, we are in the middle of nowhere without electricity).
Don't worry, we are not Amish so failure to attend the barn (well, cabin) raising without the best of reasons will not lead to censure within our community or my blog community since my readership dwindled dramatically when I stopped posting during the Summer, I need all three readers to stick around.
While there are some nice showering facilities, the toilet part is between you and mother nature......
Going out to buy mosquito spray,
