Framed!


Garage walls are up, rafters are up!  Now just a few little things left to do before the steel walls and roof go on.  Saturday afternoon, grandson Blake, Steven and husband worked in the hot sun to get the rafters up.  This last week, my Steve worked during the day to get the walls framed, and then Steven would come after work and they'd get the walls finished and up.  I had to help a couple of times = more like just hold something for them.  Those walls are really heavy. 

We're getting a few sprinkles now this Sunday morning, (we need rain again), but maybe the guys will do a few things again today if it gets nice out.  They have to put up some perlings (what the steel will be screwed into), and more support boards on the rafters. 
Here is picture of what the garage looks like after yesterdays work.  I'm mad at myself because I forgot to take pictures with all three of them working!  So hope Blake comes back to help today so I can get some more pictures with him in them.

Won't be long and it will be ready to park in.
Please send a little of that rain our way.
It has been close to 90 for almost a week straight and it's getting dry. I've been watering the garden but the rain water would do it wonders.
Hope you enjoy this holiday weekend.
