There has been good progress over the last few days. The roof trusses were delivered on Wednesday, February  26th. They were craned into place and set on Thursday. The rain started on Friday and lasted until it turned to a snow fall of about 3 inches. Not a usual thing, but not something that happens often. The crew shoveled the deck off and continued to work on the roof.
It’s a complicated roof with lots of angles on each end so they were taking their time to make sure it’s right.
We visited on March 3 to 5 to verify some plumbing things and to shop for flooring. We think we may start a trend and just varnish the sub-floor! There are too many choices out there!
