Well, week 12 was full of fun. Garage fun.
But, first, let’s meet the playas:
Ryan (my husband, you may recognize him); papa bear (puffing up his chest because he’s tough); brother bear (who is clearly too hot to handle).
I love these men.
And, not just because they build a mean garage. But that helps, obviously. 😉
This week, lots more progress was made. The team finished closing it and tar-papered the roof it just as it began to rain.
After it cleared up, Ryan and brother bear roofed it.
They make a good team. The roof looks ahhhhmazing. We chose to use architectural shingles, but the color is matched to the roof on the house.
Right after the picture below, my dad smashed his finger with a hammer. Second dad to be hurt on the job. Luckily, he’s fine.
Meloves a fresh roof.
While they roofed, my dad installed the door and windows.
We love the big windows. This was something that will be a major improvement over our current garage, which has no natural light whatsoever.
Ryan works out in the garage and also works in there, so this will be helpful.
Can’t wait til the siding goes up. Which reminds me, thank you for your comments on the color debate. You really made me think. And, I am 100 percent undecided. Still.
Luckily, all the colors are in-stock and there’s some other stuff to do first so I am buying some time.
My mama took all these photos again. Why, you ask? Because I was working while they were doing this. How spoiled am I? She’s my right-hand-blog-lady. Emily wanted to know what to call my budding blog photographer – I think we should call her Arizona Lainey on the blog. What do you think? It’s like a stage name.
I’ll still call her mama. Or mom. Or totally awesome.
And, even though I was still wallowing in my sickness, I did finish painting our closet, which looks nice, if I do say so myself. Let’s be honest, if it was up to my contributions, we’d still be working on this house when we are celebrating our 50th anniversary.
But, things are a-movin’. No major changes in the house list.
What do you think, friends?
