Framing it Up




This is what the house looks like as of today. The garage is all framed up, as well as the basement. They have to fix the windows on the front and in the kitchen and then they will move onto to framing the inside upstairs. It's amazing to see how much it changes in just one day!! We went up last night and there was no garage...when I went up this morning there were all but 1 garage wall up. I think the crew thinks I am nuts because I love to go sit up there and watch them work. They are seriously crazy!! They jump from beam to beam whole holding 2x4's and such. Today the lead framer was walking on the 2x4 on the top of the garage before it was completely nailed to each side. It makes me totally nervous, but they always just laugh when I watch them...even today after I told the head guy he was crazy!! Anyways, we are pretty excited that within the week it will look like a house!!

I have been watching the progress. I am excited to see your house when it is completed. You guys have an amazing view. A retired couple in our ward wanted to move back to their hometown in the East. They asked us to rent their home while Mike finishes school. We had been looking to move, so it worked out great for both of us. We will stay here at least until Mike takes his boards next summer, maybe a little longer depending where he gets a job. Hope you are having a fabulous summer! Good Luck.

We move to Henderson on the 18th of September. I'm really excited, our new place is perfect for us... not quite a home built just for us, but nice just the same ;) We're doing great. Brandon just started a new job that he is super excited about and I'm just excited to see him excited, you know? So if you guys find yourselves back this way, we'd love to have you stay with us, we didn't to visit much on your last visit. We didn't make it to the reunion, but Ro said they had a really great time.
