October 2013

October had us racing the snow coming down the mountains.  

Thankfully Barry stuck with us!

Starting to come together.

And the ridge pole going in!

Some days it wasn't so clear who was winning - us or the snow.  We had a lot of help at this point thankfully!  They all helped us finish the race!

The Keurig was a welcome addition to the "tools of the trade".  Mornings go a lot better when there is strong coffee involved.  It also seems to aid with the "cyphering".


You can more clearly see the gables in this picture.

And the first roofing going up!  Very exciting!

This clearly shows a problem that we had to correct this spring.  The liner in the valley should have gone on under the pieces of liner on the roof.

Steep roof!

 The snow is getting closer!

Here is the lift in life saver mode!

More roofing done!

 The inside of the upstairs room.

The roof mostly done!

Metal delivery!  Chuck was working at the neighbor's house across the road so he helped to unload it.

And the wood/coal boiler was delivered as well.  That'll keep things toasty!  That lift is soooooooo handy!  Such a huge help!

And a few more tools of the trade.  The air compressor ran pretty much non-stop during the framing!  So did the crock pot!  With so much help it was a handy way to keep them energized!

Speaking of energized.  We never did get electric while we were building in the fall.  The generator kept everything running, even if it was a bit "Green Acres" at times! Can't run the Keurig and the air compressor at the same time!  

Windows arrived in that same time frame and we were able to get those in with some help on the bigger ones in front.

Buttoned up just in time for winter!   I'll end October with some more amazing scenery.  No, I never get tired of it!
