June week 1

This week has been a good one....  Morgan took this picture of Russ... she thought it was so funny how tan his arms are in comparison to his legs.  I have noticed him wearing more shorts this week though.  :)

These pictures were taken at the beginning of the week... The outside looks pretty much the same... but we got the top plate, the upstairs framing, stairs into the kitchen, more than half of the basement framing, and lots of sheeting of the back of the house.

This is a picture of the garages... trusses were measured this week too.  Hopefully we will know soon when they will be coming!

Russ is such a sweetie!  I have trouble going in and out of the front of the house... and the back isn't that easy either... I said that we needed to get the stairs in the garage done cause next week we would be getting the porch cap, the basement stairs and the deck pad.... so we wouldn't have a way in and out of the house...  They all just jump in and out of the windows... He was so nice to take time out and build them for me!

The picture doesn't do it justice... the sky is beautiful... it just gets extremely HOT outside!

These are some of my favorite shots... the walls are 9 feet tall and he is usually hanging off of or leaning over big drop offs... I will have to stay indoors when they do the trusses!

Brayden has decided that he was going to frame his room all by himself.  It is half done!  :)

They are all getting good at hammering and using the saws, nail guns and everything else... It is fun to see the look of accomplishment when they master a new skill.

Megan wouldn't smile for me so I took pictures until she did!  This was about the tenth picture!!!

Megan is afraid of heights and she still will scoot down the stairs leading to the basement on her butt...  I was surprised to see her teetering on the top of the step stool!

Morgan is my cutting helper.  Lots of the lumber is 16 feet long and I need a helper to get it cut level!  I thought her pointed toe was a nice touch!

I think Morgan snapped this one of me... Not very flattering, but this is what I spend most of the time doing!

Pippen has a hard time with all of the noise so he usually doesn't stay out for very long... but this is where you will find him if it is at all possible!

This was a good shot of Morgan helping Russ and Megan setting up the wall that I just cut the lumber for.

Most of the time we just hand things to Russ or do things to help him do it... but they are all learning more and more each day!

Spencer did that when we finished our basement and loved doing it! The house is coming along so quickly. Can't wait to see it all done!
