Friday was another productive day. Weather has been on our side, thanks be to God. Finished setting the floor trusses. Jim Weiler (our builder) and his uncle Glen, have been wonderful to work with. The care and pride they take in their work can be seen by the accuracy and precision in every move they make in the framing of our house. These days where everything seems to be rush-rush and "good enough" is acceptable, Jim and Glen take the time to double and triple-check, and correct even the smallest problems to make it right. I am extremely grateful to be able to work alongside these guys. Not only am I working on our future home but gaining valuable knowledge by working with these guys.

As soon as the trusses were done we went right into putting the AdvanTech down. We got about a third down before it was time to call it quits. I had to get to work, plus it was Friday evening and getting dark. Monday morning we'll finish getting the deck down and start preparing for the walls. Lumber will be delivered first thing Monday morning. Pavey Excavating may be out this week to finish backfilling. Well... off to bed and get ready for what we hope will be an exciting week where a lot of visible changes will be seen. The little ones are excited to see the changes. Instead of hearing "Are we there yet?", we are hearing, "Is the house done yet?"
