Eddie, the important thing is not that you're happy, but that Karen is. :D

I agree!

Garage door is in:

Done with the framing for the garage ceiling:

One minor hitch: In spite the “perc test” showing an area suitable for a drain field, once dug one of three trenches did not drain properly due to underlying rock. Easiest thing to do was to just scale our building permit back from 3 bedrooms to 2. We did pass the final septic inspection with that change. We had only intended 2 rooms as bedrooms anyway, so no big loss.

Karen’s up there now and they started working on our carport:

That's really, really impressive, Eddie!

Great planning and execution.

Really, not a whole lot of planning involved, but in spite of that it almost looks like somebody had a plan!

And, of course Karen is painting the doghouse to match!

Fantastic progress! You and Karen should be justifiably proud, Eddie! Awfully darned cute that the dog gets his own pole barn home as well!

I'm glad to know you'll have a matching place to stay when you cross the boss.
