Welcome to my little ol' blog. I'll be upfront about it: I don't blog very often any more. If you found your way here because you read my book "Trailer Life," have a gander! But it's easier to keep up with me on Instagram or on my Facebook page. I have this long, drawn out theory on why I'm a terrible blogger, but that is a story for another day. Enjoy the ramblings of my life from the last 8 years or so.

House Progress

Ryan has had the month off (so far) and is making excellent progress on the house. The plumbing is 100% done. The ducting/coolers/heat/chimney/fireplace/air exchanger stuff is done. Lathing the outside is almost done... I'm going to take the job of putting in enough screws to meet manufacturer specs. Only 2000 more screws/washers to go!

The Iron Rooster! Ryan free-formed this thing. The pieces above are all part of the Rooster. The cage is upside down, and the expanded metal will wrap around it. The Rooster weather vane will go on top- and it's fully functional. That'll wait until the house is done.
Evidence of our wires! Ryan's dad came up and help get the wiring started. Ryan was glad to have someone who knows what they are doing to help him... when I help I have to be told what to do. I'm a great listener, but it's easier when your help has a clue.

Working towards the big mechanical inspection. After that inspection we will be ready for interior insulation. Then, lickety split, DRYWALL and exterior finish! After that, it'll all be weekend warrior type stuff.

There is possibly a light at the end of this tunnel!
