Wow! They did really well this week! What's a knee wall? The house is becoming more and more pointy. I believe that's the technical term for that.

How long have you had that Follow thing on here and why am I just now noticing it? New or another Bernice moment?

Stephen said...

I can't believe how MAJOR this project of yours is!

Wow, they're making good progress on it. BTW, if you really want to get jealous check this out. It's my friend Mike's sun room add-on.

He built it all by himself. He's becoming a regular Norm Abrams.

dang, that is coming along really fast! and I LOVE the diamond window!

Steven said...

I was hoping to see a photo taken of you hammering the last nail of one of the plywood walls. Or at least you looking out the diamond opening for the window. ;-)

They are progressing nicely. How's the response been from the neighbors?

Good pictures of something that's really well put together.

Then a picture of something that's spectacularly put together!

I love this blog!

How exciting! I've been avoiding the blogs all week, and I missed this last Saturday. I love checking on the progress! Love the diamond window! The dormer is nifty. Roof rafters rock! And now I only have to wait two more days for the next update. :)
