God is Great!

Today was a glorious day to build a house! It started out a little grey but as the day wore on the sun burst forth and by the end of the day folks were working in t-shirts.

The build site was buzzing...or maybe I should say banging with lots of work being done!

A picture is worth 1000 words...so here are a few.
































We headed out to the edge of the Rappohannock River for dinner tonight with the Willis family. On our way out there, we had to drive through a very small place, but we felt right at home and felt moved to take a photo to share...













We presented them with the beautiful quilt the KUC quilting group crafted for them and made them promise to use it and not to hang it on the wall. We also celebrated a "Big" birthday with Elise.
Tomorrow we hope to be able to get all the interior walls in place and then on to the roof trusses. Since there is a walkout basement, puttin the trusses up will require the use of a crane - that will be a first for us.

Thank you for your kind words Shelley Rose.

What wonderful things to look forward to!

Glad to hear that you were able to "get to work". I hope that you are enjoying your time in Virginia. I can't wait to hear all the stories when you come back. Say "hi" to mum and dad for me.
