Roof and such

I missed a couple of updates, but the big event two weeks ago was getting the roof trusses on. Today we had a look at last weeks progress. It basically amounted to getting the roof shingled, which happened last Monday, and some interior framing. On the logistics side there was a bit of running around figuring out what to do about two windows which were looking too big.

Here are a few of the latest pics!

Here are a couple photos of the second level.
