Rough Framing: Day 4 – Raise The Roof

My mom (carrying a cooler of beer, bless her heart) is acting as Vana for this photo set…

I’m starting to see the house looking like the final product. The roofline adds a lot.

Still agonizing over the color for the siding, but I’ve got 40 hours in a pickup truck to look forward to in the near future, so there’s a little time left for making a decision.

I continue to be exceedingly impressed with the framing crew. It could just be that I’m used to things moving at DIY-and-we-also-have-full-time-jobs pace (this is the pace that left my bathroom without trim for four years) and that this is actually normal for a 4 man experienced crew.

At any rate, it’s left time for me to ponder the fact that we have a little weed issue in the clover field…

Which we might as well just learn to accept.

There are worse things to look at after all. Like…

Um…

MysteryMan?

Is that the tail of a rabbit DETACHED FROM ITS FURRY LITTLE BODY?!

Holy shit. How does that even happen? You know, I don’t even want to know the answer to that question. I am so not cut out for this country stuff.

  1. I know, right?! Its so disturbing (and weird… just right in the middle of the yard. no blood, no other fur. no sign of a tail-less rabbit) that I had to traumatize everyone.

    That is something you definitely DON’T see in the city!

  2. OK, it worked! I’ll go back to yearning for a beach cottage instead of a cottage in the coutry. And my inner 4-year old self is saying EWWWWWWWWWWWW!

  3. My two cents on color – I think the dark blue in the drawing is beautiful!

    And sad for the bunny….perhaps he “dropped” it there and hopped away to grow a new one…
