Lots of Work Done

Brett and his parents have been busy working on the house with some help from Brett's cousin (who builds log cabins for a living) and his brother Ryan. Here are some pictures of what they've accomplished...

This is the current view of the back of our house

Here is the current view of the front of our house

These are the floor trusses where the main floor will be, looking down into the basement.

Our roof trusses are ready and waiting!

We had a bit of a scare Wednesday night. Aubree came running in the house to tell me that Dad fell down and got hurt. So I ran outside to see if he was o.k. When I asked him what happened, he told me that he was standing on the six inch ledge of the cold storage room with a 9 foot drop into the cold storage room on one side of the ledge and also a 9 foot drop into the basement on the other side. Well, he had been carrying a truss when he lost his balance and started to fall. When he saw that he was going to fall, he decided to hold on to the truss hoping that it would catch on the top of the wall and that he could hang on to that instead of falling 9 feet. That's just what happened, but while that happened, he ended up scraping his side on the truss as he fell.

I think that that really scared him because yesterday, he came home from work with Aflack insurance that he bought for himself. Now I'm thinking that it was a good idea. Hopefully we won't have to use it!

Okay, I just realized that Marc was signed into Blogger so that comment really came from me.

Hannah, it is looking so good! And I am so glad nothing more serious happened to Brett. We've had Aflac before and it is awesome!! Make sure you get it for you before you get pregnant again--you get like $3700 cash. Since we had other insurance, we actually made money when Jake was born!
