Lots of progress

Since the last post a lot of progress has been made. With the rafters finished the dormers were built. As you can see this made Courtney pretty happy.

With those done and some decking on the roof, you can really see what the house will look like now.

In the last post, I mentioned that the master bedroom was a little smaller than I like. Well, that was when the dormer wall extended into the room a bit farther than it actually had to. We were able to change that and it added quite a bit of usable space to the room. In this picture, I laid a piece of wood down so that you can see where the wall was vs. where it is now. Its not a huge amount of space, but it was amazing how much that opened up the room.
I just had to get up and see how steep the roof really is. It is REALLY steep.

More to come soon!
