So today is July 12, 2010 and I have been without the better half of myself for one month. This house is part of what has kept me going. Finishing it is a labor of love, not only for me but for all who help on it. Most of all my Daddy, his parents - both his Mom and Dad have been here nearly every day. They have been the impetus that have kept this project moving along. Mike the roofer who showed up like a miracle, Rick the first roofer who just had too much work to do to finish the job. Thanks to them both. That's Richard my girlfriend's husband on the roof painting in one of the pictures. My Daddy refused to allow me to climb up there to paint so thanks Rich! Thank you to Jeff Monnin who also showed up to help. I am amazed and grateful for the outpouring of love and sweat that it has taken to get this job to this point. Enough with the words on with some pics this is inside the front door, the hen boxes open from the back so I can reach in and get eggs and there is room for storage on this side of the house this is the hen side of the house with the roost on the left and the boxes on the right here's a shot of the whole thing, we still have a ways to go but WOW what a way we've come okay, so we really don't know what we're doing, any last minute suggestions we can use? Constructive criticism?
