Not much to show you in the way of construction.  The hubs is working on shingling the back of the house.  We need to frame in the kitchen expansion.  And then work on the back porch. 

But in the meantime, as promised, I have new car window decals.
Gone is the stick figure family.  In it's place a little peace and love.

I found these decals by Dan Morris.  I am in love with them.  I love the colors and the message. 
With all the terrifying things going on in the world, I just wanted to show some love and peace.
So either people passing by will give me a peace sign or tell me I'm number one!  We'll have to see.

No matter what angle I shot at, I couldn't stop the glare on the left side of my car.

Peace and love to all of you!

Truss(t) me

We are setting trusses on the kitchen expansion
and back porch today. 

You can see that we moved the door up from
ground level to floor level of the house.

This last picture has nothing to do with improvements to our house.
Just improvements to my car.
I bought some new stickers (not a stick figure family this time) for the back of my vehicle.
I like to have something that identifies my vehicle as mine
because there are a lot of cars with the exact year, make, model
and color driving around.
I peeled the old stickers off this evening. 
I will put the new ones on tomorrow!

(Gotta love my expression in the reflection...the sun was really bright and made it hard to see!)

A little progress on the back of the house


Just a quick post to show you the progress we are making on the back of the house. 
My hubby has been working very hard on the expansion of the kitchen and boy's room.
Our neighbors have been a tremendous help with man power and borrowed machinery!

A "before" pic. 
This shows the old concrete slab that, at one time, housed a little screened in porch.

Foundation dug.

Cement poured.

Block laid.

Post holes dug

A little help from a little old furry lady.  Her name is Sheila (affectionately called She She). 
Sheila  loves to be around construction because
that's what her owner does.
She is the sweetest, kindest, most patient dog.

Joists installed.
The door was moved up last night, but I didn't get a picture because it was dark outside.   More pictures to come.  Yippee!
