The first wall is UP!! Happy dance! The contractor was able to come by our house just as G was finishing up some nailing on the siding,
and with his handy-dandy wall-jack-thing-a-ma-jig, the first wall was raised!
It is so exciting to see a wall up! if I knew the contractor I would have given him a hug. Although that would have been a bit awkward for all involved. So I'll just do a little happy dance and hug my hard-working husband. He says the next thing to go up are 'pony' walls. My girls will just love that!
And I just realized I posted some pictures twice. See what this cold did to me brain?! Sorry for the double vision.
