Raise the roof

Today was our meeting with Park, the guy in charge of building our house. We have waited almost a month for this meeting and re-scheduled it twice. Our meeting was set for 3:00, Nate was coming home to pick me up at 2:30. At 2:15 the phone rings; it's Nate, sick as a dog, calling to say he's coming home to go to bed. I ended up going to the meeting alone, while Nate attempted to sleep off whatever tummy bug he's managed to pickup.

The meeting wasn't really as exciting as we thought it would be. Park is very nice, much younger than I expected. But the meeting was mostly a recap of information we already knew, like our plot plan and our electrical layout. He expects to be able to give us a completion date in about three weeks and thinks he'll be done in September. Cameron assured me that we wouldn't have to close until October since that is what our contract says. If the house really is done early, I don't know how we'll be able to resist closing early! Guess we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.

After the meeting, I headed back to the house to check out the roof progress. No action shots though because the guys were already done for the day. But we DO have a roof! It's mostly up, except for a little tiny patch up front by the eaves. But it looks awesome! The second floor was much easier to distinguish with the roof on. Not sure why that makes such a difference, but it did. They also put in most of the windows and doors.

Only a little more roof to go:

The front door will be painted Musket Brown later.

Nate is feeling a little bit better after his nap, some ginger ale and a little TLC. Hopefully he will sleep it off and be all better in the morning.
