Hello everybody! Well after a bad experience with finding a builder on Craigslist, some friends and I have decided to just do it ourselves with the help of some wonderful wonderful friends. So, what took this earlier "builder" 3 months to do, we will have finished in about a week (weather cooperating). Today we got to home depot around 9:30am, and got all the lumbar, some hardware and other things for the floor. Then it was right to work! My friend most of the work, I hammered in a few nails and helped carry stuff here and there. I have learned a LOT so far and this is just the floor! It is strong, study, and BEAUTIFUL. I am so excited. Here are pictures! I will update with progress! We will be working on it Wednesday and Thursday of this week. Pile of wood The Head Foreman (we had to go through her for anything, she gave a yay or a nay haha) Pier Blocks Framing Foreman checking in Framing Foreman again DONE! Took about... 2-3 hours from the time we got to home depot, no joke. Got to home depot about 9:30am, got finished about 12:30pm. This has been a long time coming and I am so glad to actually be able to see it now. I AM SO EXCITED!!!!
