Raising the Roof


After the crane left, Jeff and Randy rigged up a pulley system for us to pull the panels up and onto the roof.  The boys and I took turns being the one to pull them up with the 4-wheeler.  Because Jeff has a day job and can only work on nights and weekends, it took 2 weeks to raise the panels, 4 weeks to make and put up the eaves, and 6 weeks to put up the metal roof.  They wore harnesses and hooked in up there, but it still made me nervous to watch! 
Now that the roof is finished, we’ll move to putting down subfloor and the walls near the master bedroom.  The master will be typically built, so no timber-framing for this part!
