It's time for another up date. We got the stairs for the upstairs done!! Yea no more ladders to go up stairs. That makes it nice.

This is the back of the house. We did finish the trusses on the one side of the house and got it sheeted. We got half the upstairs trusses done.

Trent's parents came up to help us on Sat. Gail was a big help. It was good to see them, we don't get to see them very often.

We are hoping to finish the trusses this week. We ran into a snag Sat. we wanted to set the trusses on the garage, but we couldn't lift them. So we are hoping to get a crane lined out this week to get them up. They only weigh 200lbs. a piece!!
And we have to nail 4 of them together. Ouch!

We are working hard. With the help of some friends again this weekend we got a lot done. Wayne that works with Trent came out for 2 days, and Byron, Chris and Howard came out Sat.
These guys are awesome. They came all the way
out from IF.

We are working on the second level, and set some on the trusses.

Its really starting to come together. We just gotta get it enclosed before the snow flies!!!!!

We still have some piles of dirt for the kids to play on. But not for too much longer. Kenadee, Bridger, and Jayten love to climb up, and slide down.

We are trying our hand at stairs. They are not easy!!! But I think we have them figured out. We got half of them done yest. since it was soo cold and snowy outside we worked in the basement.

We got all the outside walls up and sheeted, and just about all the interior walls on the main floor done. We are going to start the garage and start the second floor this week!! Its starting to come together, just hope the snow will stay away a little longer.
