Update as Promised...

Ryan came up and got the floor joist attached to the house and got everything lined up and ready to get started the next week.  He is a busy boy, so we didn't get to see much of him that week.

But then he got back down here on Thursday and they got after it.

They did have a little supervision to help them get going...  Miss Palyn always has her nose into everything.
Next, the decking  started going down.  Progress was being made.

Hummm, I missed the decking before the porch roof went on.  But it went up fast.  Luke came up with Ryan this time and we had gone garage-saleing.  That didn't last too long, if you know what I mean, but it was long enough for the porch to go up. 

AND... for Bill to shoot a nail through his finger with the pneumatic nailer gun. He was so kind to wait on me to get home so I could see it.  Made sure it looked totally gross so he could get my sympathy.  Well it worked.  {SMILE}  The conversation went like this,
G -  "Do we need to go to Emergency Room?"
B - "No"
G - "You might need stitches"
B - "No"
G - "Let me look at it"
B - "Okay, probably just need a band-aid."
G - "No, I don't think so, I think you should go to doctor"
B - "No, I don't"
G - "When is the last time you had a tetanus shot?"  (Well, I know he hasn't had one in at least 10 years)
B - no answer, "Just put some ointment on it, it will be fine"
G - "I think we need to clean it up, I'll go get the hydrogen peroxide, bandaids, etc."
So we ended up with two bandaids and 10 minutes later one of them was coming off, so next was the first-aid tape.  Next morning, it was a little swollen but not too bad.  I still think he should go get a tetanus shot!!!

One last picture from yesterday, after all of the drama was over.  Ryan thought he would get a little one-on-one time with Luke up on the roof of the porch.  Nothing like training them early.  Hummm.....

That's all for this update.  Next will be interior.  Nothing new as far as furniture, but some rearranging and organization happening.  With the remodeling, it's all looks totally new.  I do have plans to make more updates and painting of furniture and such, but that's gonna have to wait awhile.  Got other things to take care of first.
See ya next time,
