Lookin' Good

Well, while I have taken a brief hiatus from posting, we have certainly not taken a break from construction. Piper has been working hard to getting all the roof trusses in place and the south dormer framed out. The north dormer has proven to be a framing challenge. There was a few days I thought Piper's head might explode from figuring out how to cut the compound angles. (He decided the reason why you don't see many Gothic style houses anymore was because modern power tools can't cut at such steep angles and no one wants to cut all that by hand.) But after much patience and creative problem solving, we were able to lift the north dormer wall into place this morning. Now if it will only stop raining, we could finish framing it out before the roofing gets delivered on Monday.
