Demolition Done-We're Building!

They flew thru the air with the greatest of ease1
How amazing to see the giant crane lift up these truss's into the air (in the wind) and just drop them right into place, with a little help of the workers.

Look, the trusses in place, ready for the roof. It is really starting to take place.

Steve has had the dream of moving an old pioneer wagon to a different place in the yard. Well, the crane operator, said, "Sure". So up the wagon went, high into the air.

Here is the wagon being moved into it's new location. It looks great there.
Stay tune next week for the next developments. It's exciting!

Demolition Derby-House Style

Well, it has started. We have wanted to do this project for a long time. This is one of the favorite parts of our house, our deck. This is the before.
This shows our deck and the back of our house--before . . .

The demolition started. Steve and his sons were the muscles behind this. This is day 1.

Almost all of the roof has disappeared. That is Matt on the roof swinging the sledge hammer.

This is the end of the first week. The roof and sides of the deck are gone. The poles that will support our new roof and the start of the new deck are in place. Wait til you see the end results.
