Addition Part 3

Where did we leave off? Pete has been working his butt off on this.  In the last week it has really been coming along. We are very lucky to have family and friends who have given their time.  You can catch up here on part 1 & part 2!

 Pete was trying to get the dirt compacted so that the foundation could be poured early last Saturday morning. He spent HOURS on Friday evening digging out water with a small bucket then filling it back in with dry dirt hoping he would finish before the rain came again.
Our brand new neighbor and his father in law came over to help get the compacter in then stayed to make sure Pete got the ground covered as it started to rain! Thanks Doug & Ray!
The foundation guys called Pete at 6:30 on Saturday morning to see if it had stayed dry! They arrived an hour later and poured the slab.
Pete wrote our names in :)
Ready to go!
It took Saturday to dry, then early Saturday morning Pete and his Dad got right to work!
Peter was ready to jump in at any time to lend a hand :)

I delivered the sunscreen & beverages, hehe :)

He spent a couple evenings during the week ripping the siding off the house. On Friday night, Pete started framing.
Jack loves going out while Daddy is working to cause trouble :)

Saturday all the walls went up! Thanks Joe, Brandon & Wayne!
Trying to get the third wall finished and up!
All the walls are up!
Next post will be the roofing! What do you think so far?!
