Projects

It seems we're always working on a project around the house.  For some of the bigger one's, we've created some "photo timelines" or mini-blogs of the project as it progresses.  It's fun for us to look back after the project is complete and see how it came together. 

Browse through the albums below to check out some of these projects or click here for a large list of projects we've done, and some we still have planned.

Roof framingHere you can see the roof framing in progress. We used 2x4's for the roof, to give it more strength.

Inside the ShedOne last view of the shed, this time looking to the right of the tractor. This shed freed up some much-needed storage space in the garage, and we are able to easily get to all the tools and equipment now.

Swing BeamOn Thursday, we continued on by working on the swing beam. In the garage, we assembled the "A-frame" for the end support, as well as drilled all the holes through the timber and attached the swing hangers. Here, at the playground site, Cathy checks out the frame right as we get ready to attach it to the beam.
