Walking around

 Things are framing up. I no longer have to rely upon upon a ladder to ascend to the second floor. Jim spent two weeks building the double winder staircase. The subfloor has been installed in the original house section and the addition. Blue spruce is a fine light contrast to the aged patina of the ash timbers. All the windows are installed. I am now turning my attentions to furring out the walls and ceiling for the electrician, plumber, and most of all the insulator. Electricity has been connected to the house, although a good handsaw and plane go quite a distance. With any luck and a lot of continued persistence the house will be closed up by snowfall. Sam
