Garage Floor

We are getting ready to pour the garage floor.

We are getting pretty good at pouring concrete.


Poor dog can't catch a break. Last year he had a broken leg and this year he has a torn ligament on the same leg. He is a cutie though.

Pavers on the Deck

Most of the pavers are on the deck It looks so good. It really made the space look big. We are going to have a lot of fun times out on the deck!

Kylee was an awesome help she had a fun time making the pattern.

My family helped with the pavers this weekend. Thanks guys.

Grading The Yard

There was a lot of dirt that was moved around. I believe that the yard is pretty close to grade now but there is still a long way to go on the yard.

Lance Has Backing Skills

Lance backed the gigantic forklift into the garage in the dark. Now that is some skill.

First Outlet and Shedtastic Power

We have power in the shed, an outlet and a light! We have the coolest shed on the block.

This is the only source of electricity that we have in the house. The cool thing about that is that it is inThe House.

Windows Are Least Some of Them

We have all of the smaller windows in! The larger ones were ordered and will be here in a few weeks.

Fillin' The Holes

The stoppers were put in with a hammer and a little tool.

Now it is filled. The stoppers are both the inside and the outside with spray foam in between for insulation.
This is the hole left over from the form ties that needed to be filled.
He is cute!

Lance cut all of the rubber stoppers down to fit the holes in the walls. We had 1,800 stoppers that needed to be cut. Lance did it 8 at a time.
Remember Chemistry Class....Rubber Stoppers!

Starting on the Deck

We have had lunch on the new deck a few times. It is so cool.

Toilets Are Fantastic

We have a toilet!!! Clay installed one this past week and I am so excited.

The next layer to the roof is the membrane. It lays over the foam insulation. Lance is cutting some of the membrane into strips that will be put up over the edges to make sure that all of the foam and wood is totally covered.

Bruce is gluing the two membrane pieces together to create a water tight seam. Even the scuppers get a membrane lining.

Crickets...not just insects anymore

The next layer on the roof is the foam insulation. The crickets will direct all of the water to the scuppers.

Skylight Hole

This will be the skylight very soon! It will be so cool.

The Roof Continued

The scuppers are really cool. They are all in and ready to go.

This is how things get on the roof. The forklift is really big.

Elin was stuck with the clean up duty. Thanks, it made me happy. The poor went well. We had plenty of help which is always nice. Thank you to all of our helpers!
