Oh dear. It was a cold day here. When the sun shone us it was really nice but by afternoon it clouded over and it was just plain... chilly.. burrrrrr.
We hired a crane to help us lift two huge beams into the ceiling of the 2nd floor. That was at 8am this morning. At the same time the gas company was working hard at running a gas line down to us.
Tomorrow the cable company comes to run lines to the house. They will supply our local phone, cable TV, and high speed internet.
By late afternoon we were measuring from the beams to the outside of the house for floor joist length. Till we got so cold that we called it a day.
I really need some hot chocolate to warm up! Come on back later, I'll post some pictures of our crane experience.
