I took that picture of them setting the beam yesterday, but didn't really go outside the rest of the day. And I couldn't see what the construction guys were doing the rest of the day, as the front of the house was blocking what they were working on. Until late afternoon, DH said come out and look.......
Today they are working on sheeting that roof area, which I'm sure will change it even more on how it looks/feels. I need to do some research on what kind of electric fireplace insert to get. They seem to be pretty reasonably priced and framer just wants to know if it needs to be vented or not. It's going to be built in a short half wall in the sitting room. It doesn't appear that these types I'm looking at do need venting. Does anyone have an electric fireplace? This one on Amazon has good reviews.
It looks like I will get to see DD again next month. They are planning on coming over mid November weekend with their new camper trailer and spending the weekend. I just hope by then there are no issues for them to get over the passes to get here and back home. Next week is my trip over to see her, mom, and my boss/office. DD has a Saturday appt. set up to try on wedding dresses at David's Bridal with me, my mom and her future MIL.
Just got news an old friend has lost his long battle with cancer. So sad. Seems like so many have lost their lives so young lately. Our boys were good friends.
