Saturday, June 22nd

Saturday was the DAY.... the day we set trusses!  We had lots of help thankfully.... Russ' dad and coworker helped to get everything where it needed to be.

 Tom, Ben and Russ worked setting the trusses on the roof!

 Brayden kept wanting to go up into the trusses... I wouldn't let him till we were over the house part!  :)

Front and Back view of the house now.

Marty and Lee helped to get the trusses set up on the ground.

Trusses coming down....

This is one of my favorite pictures of the day!  Russ works sooo hard.... he gets up early, early and works 4 hours at his job.  He gets here mid morning and we all work till 9 pm then we start again the next morning.  He is stressed and sleep deprived.... but hopefully as soon as we get the framing 100% done things won't be so crazy... but I won't count on that.  :)  I love this picture because despite all of the hard work, there is a sense of accomplishment that comes with building your own home.  It was nice to capture a smile as he worked with his friends and family.
