Framing crew came in today and pounded out a bunch of the framing. One more day definitely to finish it. I'm excited with how big the closet for my office turned out... Although because it is so big I'm going to have to put a light in there. Darn. more »

This was a crazy busy weekend... We had to finish emptying the basement before construction starts! We had a LOT of crap down there. We ended up loosely packing boxes just to get it done. Here it is mostly empty... Fun starts in the morning. more »

Katie hates the beige throughout our house, so decided to paint it. Unfortunately she picked a weekend that she had a lot of real work to do, so we enlisted her parents to come help. They came over, along with our sister-in-law to help out, both with… more »

After grabbing lunch today we made a Lowes trip. We picked up a bunch of sprinkler supplies, peat moss, vermiculite, and manure. When we got home I finished off the watering system. Added a place to attach the garden hose to provide water, and a dist… more »

So when we started planning this Katie mentioned she didn't want it to be ordinary 4x8 boxes. So we decided to tweak things. Today I got started. First off I made all my cuts at once. This allowed for assembly line construction later. more »

Today we put in the base irrigation pipes for the garden. First we dug 45 feet of trench to lay the pipe in. Then I assembeled it as we wanted. And finally filled it in. Put to words it doesn't sound like much, but took most of the day. That night… more »

Today I built the bases for the cockpit. I started off with a 2x4 structure. Then added 1x4's of nicer wood around the outside of that. Then I just had to put a skin on the sides. Unfortunately I only had that crappy wood, so it's not super great.… more »
