July 29

Seems like things picked up this week. They finished putting up the trusses and the sheathing should be up today; well that is what I have been told. I'll check it out on Monday. You can see the opening for the dormer that will be providing some nice natural light into the cat condos. CMP was back at work replacing the utility poles, they would be done next week.

Donna and I spent 4 hours yesterday with Sheri, our architect choosing colors for the walls, floors, doors, frames, windowsills, etc. Who knew how much work that would be. For some reason I kept dreaming in colors of pink and orange last night! There could have been purple too!

Not to worry, I think you will be very pleased with the colors that we chose :-)

July 24

Sorry for no updates recently, but not much has happened. The building crew had a little problem with the bracing of the trusses, but that has been dealt with and things are moving along again. Today was the first day I saw them put some of the trusses up, so I was able to get some good shots for you.

I can wait for the roof to be completed so the interior work can get started...

July 11

As you can see from the photos, we almost have a roof! I have been told that by the end of the week most of the roof will be complete except for the shingles. Once the roof is completed they can start framing the interior walls....

July 1 update

Just a quick update... The trusses are on their way but won't here till next week. I just found out they are coming down from Canada. They are 85 feet long and I am told that there isn't any manufacturer in that sates that make them that big. As of yesterday the first load will be delivered on Monday; second load on Wednesday and then start to put them up on Thursday. But, I have come to the conclusion that schedules can change like Maine weather!

Have a great Fourth and I'll update again after the Holiday...
