Roofing begins - June 2008

We have to remind ourselves that everything begins slowly and then picks up as we develop competence. The roof has begun, but slowly at first. We can recommend regular phone calls with John and David to get advice before beginning each new phase of building. Their tips and suggestions are invaluable. When we were first beginning, John told us, "You don't need to build your house fast. You need to build it well." Hmmm, does that mean that if we're slow, then it's good? If that's the case, this place is gonna be stinkin' gorgeous.
Summer afternoon convection thunderstorms are here, thus the push to roof in the house. The boys attempt to stay dry by using off-cuts of Typar.
