Roofed in!

It's amazing how much work the crew has accomplished in a short period of time. Ryan and I visited family in D.C. and Philly over the long weekend...and as we flew out of the Burlington airport, our flight path took us directly over the site! We could see the guys working on the roof! Imagine our surprise when we got back and saw that it had been completely sheathed and the second floor deck installed. It's an incredible feeling to walk up our stairs and around the second floor. It was particularly special to explore what will become the nursery.

In other news, our wonderful excavator, Moe DuBois, made us an offer we couldn't refuse-in trade for our excess topsoil, we received those gorgeous rocks you see in the last picture. They're going to make for a very natural looking stone retaining wall around the basement walkout.
