The Second Floor….

Work continues as they begin the second floor. Since this is a saltbox style home, we will only have second story livable space on the front side of the house. The back half will be roof trusses. If you are familiar with this style of home then you know how the roof has a deeper pitch/slope on the back side.
Joe and I love the look of old saltbox style homes. I don’t know what it is about them that draws us in. They are so timeless.
 
Okay, back to our little red saltbox. Another wall went up yesterday.

The house is starting to take shape now. I can’t wait for the roof to go up! I think the trusses are scheduled to go up tomorrow actually.
Lots more to see, but it’ll have to wait till next time!
 
Blessings,
Julie

    1. They worked on our back porch today, and a couple walls upstairs. They are lining everything up for the trusses. All 26 will be going up tomorrow. That's when it'll really take shape. Can't wait!

  3. Definitely a dream coming to fruition. We are so excited! Our grandchildren can't wait either. They have been packing some of their favorite toys "to bring to their new home". Their words, not mine. Aren't they funny! LOL!

    Hugs,
