Building Project- Day 23

With The Inspector's approval of the foundation, work on building could commence.

First, we need some materials to build. And what is that coming up the driveway? Is that a new piece of machinery that we haven't seen yet?

Hmmm. . . 

Could that be. . . ?  Yes, I think it is a. . . 


The forklift delivered all sorts of wood and wood product which, at the end of the day, needed to be covered by large tarps since we keep hearing about inches and inches of rain about to fall on us. (Please, rain, please don't split my tomatoes!)

Once the materials were delivered, much work was done. Many kids were thrilled to help carry wood and other small tasks. The nail gun was introduced to the project. And, in the end, we had some floor joists!

The rain isn't here yet, so the work has begun this morning. I can't wait to see the progress today.


  1. Things are really progressing! The rain here has pounded us since around 3pm, and nobody was home to put my porch tomatoes back onto the porch. There have been plant casualties!

    1. Well, it started before noon with some drizzle and then progressed. I'm not sure if I'll get the pictures up tomorrow/today morning, but let's just say that it's a mess out there!
