Framing Continues

Here are some additional pictures of the house now that framing has progressed somewhat. According to the construction schedule, framing should finish up this week but it rained quite heavily yesterday and there was a little bit of a delay with getting some of the floor trusses, so we are not sure it will be fully finished by then.

This picture shows that the second floor trusses have been put up, and the sub-floor has been installed on top of them (in the places where we will have an upper floor. The house won't fully extend over the garage.

This is a view of the garage (and Seth).

This is a view of the house from where the patio will be.

Pinewood Derby 2014

The Pinewood Derby was back on March 25. This year grandpa helped Rand with his car. Rand decided to make a truck (and we actually saw a black truck with 2 orange stripes just the other day). Grandpa cut it out with the saw and then Rand sanded it. They spray painted it black and then added the stripes and weights and wheels. They made the Pinewood Derby pretty fun with nachos and hot dogs and popcorn. Each boy got to do 4 different races. Rand lost 2 and then won 2 - pulling ahead near the finish line. So it was a fun night.

And just a few other pics from the past few weeks...
