I haven't written for a while so I thought I should write before nobody checks my blog anymore.

Today we put tarpaper up on the roof to help prevent rain INSIDE! A couple of days ago while my Uncle was here it rained but we had borrowed a big 30x50 ' tarp to hang up inside the frame of our house. (that worked out real good)

I guess I haven't written for so long that nobody knows how far we have got on our house. Like I said, we put tarpaper on the roof so that means we have put the trusses on and the chip board sheathing on. And also we have both end walls complete and we have a little more sheathing to do on the outside of the walls.

The peak of our roof is about 26' at the front. A little high for carrying up sheats of chip board. We got things figured out, we had Andrew and David on the floor with the piece of chip board they would lift and pass it to Jonathan and I, then we would lift it and Dad would guide it onto the top boards on the saffolding and then Jonathan and Dad would climb up and lift it onto the trusses (which is the roof). We have taken a lot of pictures so that we can look back and see what we did to build our house. I can't wait to be able to look and think back to the time when we were building the house.

Mom has pictures at her blog but they are kind of out dated. Since I haven't put any pictures on for a long time they'll be new to you.

Andrew (my brother) has turned 10! It seems like just a little while ago he was 9! he was :o) He got a .22 long rifle for his birthay from Grandpa! he is exited
Sorry for the late post.

Hi Peter, You are still there. Thought you must have been busy, so didn't expect to see much bloging.

We do check every day though.

Hang on good when your on the roof. Its a long way down and an abrupt stop if you fall off.

I am glad your taking a lot of pictures. Yes it will be fun to look back some day to see what you guys did. Not to many people build their own house.

We are proud of you all.
