Under Construction







Keith has decided that this is the year of building. We are putting a garage along the driveway. Ever since we moved here, 12 years ago, we have talked about putting one there. At this point, we have 2 small utility sheds to hold all of our stuff. Not sure why this is the year but our mortgage company agreed that it was a fine idea. (OK, they were happy to lend us money so that they could make some money.) With acreage, we figure a garage is a good investment. Many of the people around here own boats and campers (we do not) and someone buying the property in the future (when we are too old to mow massive amounts of grass and blow snow from the really long driveway), will think it is a good idea, too. So, similar to the swingset but on a much grander scale, Keith had to cut down trees to clear the area. He's such a lumberjack ;) Then the trenches were dug for the footings. Mya thought those were great fun. They will be putting in the foundation this week and pouring the floor too. Erin thinks it will be a great place for her friends to party. Hmmmm . . . not sure about that one.
