Building Blocks

And so it begins, today we got in the building blocks for the walls!  And what I mean is Wyoming Log Homes delivered the logs for the sidewalls!  Whoo hoo!


Thank Goodness we had the best little helpers today.


Unloading them was alright, until the last two bunks, then things got serious.  At one point I was pretty sure The Rancher was going to get flipped out of the Skid Steer because the weight of the logs was so heavy off the truck it jerked it forward so fast!


So the last bunk we split into two sections to move the logs.  Jeepers!


And the kids are already “Climbing” the walls!



And so begins the new foundation of our family home.  We are so blessed with so much support.


Visitors Galore

We have been so blessed with great company and friends over the past few weeks! Over 25 people (children included) have graced us with their presence to enjoy the Mountain life.  Remember, if you come during construction season (such as when we are rebuilding after a fire), you may get put to work but there is always fun to be had fishing, exploring, riding horse and 4-wheelers and of course enjoying the evening with a campfire!

Some of our guests choose to hang out and go fishing and wildflower picking as well as horseback riding, and oh, did I mention help with putting the floor joists together!

Some enjoyed 4-wheeling and exploring the country, campfires, and yes, helping us use the new boat to clear out some garbage out of the dam.

This set had smore’s, lots of touring including the Battle of the Little Big Horn, as well as helping with a fence and garden!

Thank goodness everyone is up for fun and work this summer!  It has been crazy busy so far!

How has your summer been going?!
