And the Work Continues...

Well, the work continued today (as you can see from the picture), but it progressed despite my presence. I was at home most of the day with a 101+ temperature drifting in and out of sleep and only made a short appearance at the farm to feed the pigs and cut a few boards. In reality though, I'm not much of the builder out there ... I'm just the worker! It truly is great to have Becca's parents in town because they know what they are doing when it comes to building a house.

Anyways, as you can see from the picture we now have the rooms mostly framed in. There will be five rooms all along the back wall (kids room, babies room, parents room, bathroom, and laundry room) with a big common area across the front with our living room, dining room, and kitchen. Because of this the building stage has been able to progress fairly quickly as we can build the walls on the floor and then put them up.

We are only a little over one month away from having to be in the new house though, so we have a lot of work to do in a short amount of time. I guess this is where the "modern homesteader" thing really comes into play ... we've got to get everything in order before the winter winds and snow surround us. It really is a cool process to see it all come together and makes me thankful that I am surrounding by so many people willing to help.

Keep checking back if you want some more house updates. Hopefully we will begin wiring tomorrow and maybe even be putting up some insulation by the end of the week!

Congrats on the build.Pretty exciting seeing it all come together. I am doing a full reno of a small pole barn garage/workshop and am just deciding on what insulation to use. What's going on your walls?
