Progress

Our building project is moving along again after a slight delay by the drywall contractor. Finally, late Friday afternoon it was ready to paint.

Progress: 
On July 27TH, just a week and a half ago, this is how our “Cabin” looked.DSC_1830
Yesterday it looked like this:

WOW!!!  What a difference. Rollie and Gina really made some progress yesterday..

IMG_7185Here is Gina hard at it. She is an excellent painter, has lots of experience and loves to do it….

Here she is working on the ceiling. This is tough work and is a killer on the neck.   She says she likes the walls better.  I felt so sorry for her last night. Her neck was really sore!  I hope she was able to sleep last night.

Rollie was busy working on the electrical switches and plugs and just look what he has done to the outer wall in the garage.
DSC_1845This is how it looked back on July 30TH….
IMG_7199This is how it looked as of last night. Light switches and wall plugs all in and operational. These kids are SPECTACULAR!!!  Rollie says he will have us taking a shower in our new “Cabin” in 5 days!!

That might not be any too soon either because we have someone that is very interested in our present home. Some real nice young folks came and looked at our Teton and Volvo last week and liked it real well. They are coming back today to see it again.  Keep your fingers crossed and say a special little prayer for us and maybe we will be moving into our “Cabin” sooner than we expected..

Although I’m not one to be blessed with a lot of patience and I like things to go fast but all these happenings are a little overwhelming for a couple old people…..WHEW!

We are blessed though, blessed in so many ways. We continue to praise the Lord and give thanks for all he is doing for us.  And...a VERY SPECIAL THANKS to Rollie and Gina.  You are amazing and we love you very much!

It was a GREAT WEEK!!!

Thanks for stopping by and we hope to see you Wednesday and tell you more about our progress and just how serious our prospective buyers are.  Check out Rollie and Gina's Blog for more progress on the "Cabin".

God Bless You All.

Gina and I both slept very good last night. Progress on your summer cabin is really moving fast now. This is the phase that I love because you can see it come to life. We love you and Mom and we're praying all goes well today with the prospective buyers.

Love Y'all
Your Kids

Looking good!!! Your cabin is beginning to look like a "castle" - very nice! My neck was sore just looking at Gina with that long-handled paint roller. You're right, painting ceilings is a real neck-killer - better get that lady a good massage therapist after all the painting's done!

Good luck with selling that monster RV and its matching monster truck! Maybe you can hold off on delivery until you have some furniture in that summer cabin! It's sure looking great.

Good luck on the Sale of the Teton and the HDT, but I'm not sure how you will function without that HDT. But perhaps if you just go ride the Harley for a while!!!!

You are so right...Rollie and Gina are very special folks. Quite talented I must say.
Your summer cabin is really looking good and I know you and Pat are getting excited about moving into it.
I must say I cheated (catching up on blogs since our doggie got sick) and saw where you all sold your rig/truck! Congratulations!!

God is good!
