Grace and Sam


Grace and Sam are pretty big buddies.  She is usually his watcher and Julie has Daniel.  As you can see, Sam must be barricaded away from the construction zone.  He is just a little bit too much help. 


He looks a little sad, don’t he? 


The electrical is all done and the ceiling is hung.  Monday we will hang the walls and start putting the mud on (hopefully).  After that, the new floor goes down.   Hubby will be building her a pantry to go beside her new stove.  


The boys were very happy when they were allowed inside the construction zone to help.  They worked very hard pulling up the old tile.  Daniel would pull it up with his special tool and Sam would carry it to the trash.  Very good helpers.

Temperatures here are very cold.  Wind gusts of about 40 mph with an actual temperature of 13 degrees, putting the wind chill below zero.  Our wood stove has been working hard keeping us nice and warm inside though.  I hope you all have a great weekend and stay warm.  God bless.

  1. I bet the boys were so happy when they finally got to help! Looks like everything is coming along nicely. I miss you when you’re gone even if we don’t get together every week!

    We got the mulch delivered from a place in Christiansburg. I can’t remember the name, but I will ask Quentin and let you know.

    It is freezing today. We took care of the animals in a hurry. Monday is supposed to start warming up again so let’s keep our fingers crossed. 🙂

    Have a great Sunday!



  2. Those are cold temps. We are in the upper 40s, but it is cloudy. What great helpers they were. I am sure that was very cute to watch them work.

    Have a wonderful weekend. The project is coming along great.



  3. Wow, you guys have been busy. I can’t wait to see it all when it is finished. I think it would be so much fun to have grandkids while you still have little ones at home. They look like they are having so much fun. They are precious. We went from the 70’s to temps in the teens here. We have our wood stove burning and they are forecasting snow flurries. Crazy weather. I hope you have a great week.
