Windows and doors are in on the first floor and two of the windows are installed on the second. It looks like Structures has started with the nail base, but weather may be an issue next week and delay progress further.

By the way, sorry for recent absence from the blog; if anyone is reading this. Since the shingles were stolen a while back, I've hesitated to post anything on the progress in the off chance those worthless fu$&ers had the internet, a computer and even knew what a blog was.

It's funny (not really) how violated you feel when someone messes with your shit. Its been over a month now and I still can't shake it. I've been spending just about every evening up here waiting, hoping and praying they come back so I can sick ole Barley on 'em; but no dice. In time - they'll be back.

I talked to my neighbor today and he told me they got the Thaxton tire bandits. He had a truck load of tires dumped on his property back in May when someone swiped some parts off my dads track loader. I wonder if the bastards they caught were the same creole that took my shingles (fingers crossed) -

Anyhow, I'm about to wrap up this day on the mountain burning brush and chasing the pups around.
