Shop Construction

We began building our shop a couple weeks ago. It's all framed up, and we're in the process of putting on the roof. We've had a lot of good help, and have been moving along pretty quickly. I don't know much about building; I just take the pictures. :)

The guys on the roof were getting the rafters up faster than Daddy could cut them.

I thought this picture came out really well, if I do say so myself.
Here's how it looked before they started putting up the sheet metal. I'll post an updated picture soon.

Looks like the guys have been rather busy but, taking pictures is most of the work, wouldn't you think? ;)

Looks great from my point of view...maybe I'll be able to see it in person someday!

Thanks for the post Tricia Ann! Looking forward to seeing the rest of the pictures! :)

Wow, a regular barn raisin'! Looks fabulous.

I have to say, several of those pictures are magazine-worthy. You're good with the camera! =)
