Still seems a bit like magic to grandma.

Intricate puzzle pieces.

The Jungle

The maze.
The will-be-walls
Studded jungle.

"Blue skies....." 





And there'll be stories down the road-
some enlarged and some just told,
of problems solved and some created.
"Should have done",  and "Should have waited."
This picture does not tell it all
How two  fine men raised one fine wall.

Onward and Upward

And that's a wrap.

Matt, are you under there, boyo?

Let's
try
to build
a membrane 
through which the landscape
and camp effortlessly pass through.
Hat in hand,
trusty tool belt slung over my shoulders
tired, but dreaming son-dreams.  
Door to the future.

Floor joists march in tandem,
skipping  stairway to the sky.
Don't you love a man in an apron?
Ballet on green stilts
Perfect partners. 
 A pas de deaux 
jigsaw puzzle
each piece doing its job

Floor Stringers

First floor
birthing
the second. 
Grunt,  push, here it comes.

Let me just tidy up a bit.
And still they come.
Another hot day.  Work well done.

The start of wall five.
Measure twice, cut once.
Four and counting.
Are you feeling walled in?
Room with a view.
Prowness.
Break time.
And then there were two.
So much to learn.
Clerk of the works.
 First wall peeking from behind the tree.
Wall-waiting.  (heh heh)

And the Third Little Pig Made His House Out of...

Imagine walls.

Family Affair

Now, when I did it...

"We're ready to do a little dozin'. "
"I'm thinking the hot tub should go here."
