August Summer FUN

FRFF 2017

CONSTRUCTION UPDATE:

We picked Gaelen up on the way back from Falcon Ridge to spend the week with us!!! With his help we were able to get the roof on in 3 1/2 days. Gaelen was the rafter mover and came up with some good ideas on how to move the tin around on the roof as well as holding it while I screwed it in the place with my new 20v DeWalt cordless drill!!! Was amazed at how easily the roof went up. The North side was a 8/12 pitch and the South side a 9/12 due to the leveling inconsistencies with the foundation. The whole house is higher on the East end but hey those are the things that make it quirky and homey! Brenda & Billy showed up on Sunday with a 28 foot ladder which I needed to get off the roof after the last sheet went on. We finished at 4:30pm on Sunday in time to go camping in Agawam Massachusetts and hit 6 Flags for the entire day on Monday

SIX FLAGS NEW ENGLAND

CONSTRUCTION UPDATE:


Spent this weekend before Falcon Ridge constructing the 3rd floor walls. They are only 4 feet high so our bedrooms will be snug. Took advantage of Jakobi’s Birthday Party Guests to lift the ridge poles and move up a heavy window which we got for free from one of our neighbors and to also lift the wall with that window in it! Thanks Neal, Billy and Evan!!!! Now we are ready to put the roof on when we get back from the Falcon Ridge Folk Fest!!!
