Despite some setbacks, progress continued last week through the weekend. Our framer, Gary Giltner, of Giltner Construction, came back to make a few adjustments to the interior framing and install siding, windows, and doors (not all of which ended up making it to the jobsite on time). 

All the same, we are making tremendous progress. Given that we are new at being general contractors, we were a bit worried that the project would stretch on and on, but the build is going fairly quickly. Dave and Lisa have been traveling out to Winthrop when Alex and I can't (because Alex's due date is coming soon), and they've done a great job monitoring every aspect of construction, not to mention putting in more than their fair share of sweat equity.

Here are some new progress pictures taken last weekend. That clear blue sky just reminds us how nice it will be to sit out on the porch and relax (once the work of building is complete).
