The other day, I pulled up to the building site - and lo and behold, it looked like a REAL HOUSE standing there!And they hadn't even built the bonus room above the garage, yet I really felt like the trusses made a HUGE difference. So, then I had to take some artsy-fartsy photos of the trusses:
Yup - I'm silly. I admit it. But aren't they pretty?
They started framing up the bonus room, and this is the special spot for Roger's private urinal and sink:
I know, I'm a great wife for putting a urinal in the house for the man and his friends, right? Unfortunately (for the builders), the trusses that go over the master bedroom and bonus can't be pre-ordered. They must be "stick-built," which is a lot of customized work that I can't begin to imagine. I have been worried about them, as they seem to hang from my house like monkeys...but I was glad to see that they are going to use this machine to help them hoist the wood and themselves above the bonus room:
Today, they were almost done framing the bonus room! So you can imagine how high the trusses will be to roof over this part of the house.
We should be "in the dry" by this time next week - I can't wait!!
