By the end of next week our foundation will no longer be naked. Windows and trusses are enroute, and things are starting to get real. Sure gonna be nice when we're not living under a bridge anymore. This is the first time we've gone from dirt to house so it's exciting, but kind of scary as well. Interesting knowing you have "X" amount of money to play with and doing a lot of robbing Peter to pay Paul maneuvers. But, by playing a very active roll in the project I have found some good cost cutting measures that have allowed us to make some things nicer than originally planned. Picking the exterior colors/layout was the worst. The wife and I had somewhat different ideas on that and it was kind of a mix between negotiating nuclear disarmament with North Korea and wrestling with a porcupine. In the end we both got s little of what we wanted with the scale weighted heavily on her side. We can not wait for the RV park to open up in April so we can get back up there and get busy.
