It’s interesting how much work a team can do, yet it doesn’t look like any progress was made. Which is what happened over our last BBBBq.
We worked and worked but it doesn’t look like anything changed in the house. That’s because we were mainly just strapping the roof and walls. You tell me if you see a difference:
See? Not much for fifteen man-(and woman)-hours worth of work.
We had a whole team of slaves come and help us. My brother Justin and his girlfriend Chloé who came over from France! I know what you’re thinking, but it’s not the first time I’ve gotten my French family to work without going on strike!
Jenna also got to work on the house more than usual as she didn’t have to handle all of the cooking.
All those little metal straps, brackets and ties will ensure that our house makes it further than around the corner.
While we were hammering along, Gabe and Jen worked on the Hurricane Holdowns and framed the dormer windows.
Finally, Jenna tested her measuring skills to figure out how to cut the sheathing for the dormers (thank you Chloé for snapping a few of those pictures).
In the end, everyone was rewarded with an eight pound hunk for marinated pork that we threw on the rotisserie. Now here’s an action where we can really see the progress! Not like strapping a house…
Just in case you didn’t quite notice the difference…
In case I don’t see ya, good morning, good afternoon, good evening and good night,
