House update - now


Well, everything dried out from the storms, and we didn't have any damage, but we are ready to get this thing under roof.

Our framers are ready too. One of them worked all weekend. They got the osb up this week on top of the roof.

Remember the sonotubes a few posts back? You can see what their job is in this picture.

Closer view....

The ceiling frames are in. There is probably a correct term for this, not ceiling frames, but I don't know what it is. We are having 8 foot ceiling height in some rooms and 9 foot in other rooms.

Remember the huge piles of dirt. Well, Dave has been working to smooth it out.

We're going to plant clover and rye in it, and some self-seeding flowers by the pond.

I've lost some sleep over these roof lines being too high. Oh well, nothing I can do about it. It looks like a two story, but it isn't.

This is the only two story part of the house..

and this is a ton of attic space.



  1. Looks like things are coming right along. I love that porch! You will prolly spend many hours of your life rocking on those porches... and crocheting!

  2. looking great so glad I got a grand tour last weekend:::now things are clear in my head


  3. I love how different it is looking Ms Bee.
    Thankyou for the eyeballs again...very clever of you.....You might want to lay off the eye stuff , since now your dreaming of

  4. Hey Queen - You're welcome..again..for the eyeballs! Thanks for the compliments on the house. It's been a lot of work. Still is, but my part is slowing down a little bit. I don't think I'm going to be relaxing on the porch crocheting for a few years.

    Gloria - Glad you enjoyed the tour and got things clear in your head! (is that possible?)
