This post includes a lot of topics. I’ll try to keep each one short so you don’t nod off…
The Roof is Done
Whew, the roof is finally done! All the metal flashing is up and we should be water-proof now. All the ups and downs on the ladder, putting on the harness (so I don’t fall off), fighting the wind that frequently tried to pull the metal out of my hands, etc.
Lest you get the wrong idea, Laurie has been a tremendous help in all of this. She stays on the ground and does things like cut metal, pre-drill holes in the metal, hands metal and other stuff up to me, makes great suggestions, etc. She truly is an invaluable partner in all of this!

Happy House Mini-Me
A while back, before we even started the Happy House, we build the duck house. We thought it would be cute to fashion it similar to what the HH would look like. It has 8 sides and we call it the Duckagon. Here’s a picture I couldn’t resist:
Looks like a HH “mini-me”, huh?
We did some rough grading around the house and it started to look pretty good. Unfortunately, we had to dig more holes for the deck posts. We’ll be starting on the deck soon.
