Tinker Toys, Lincoln Logs, Erector Sets

Last week the lumber for the addition framing arrived. Now we just have to put it together. Hysterical laughter. Matt came home from Los Angeles on Friday evening. Saturday he and Tom spent the day hauling debris from the demo to the burn pile and the dump. Sunday they began framing.

They found this mummified Flicker inside part of the exterior wall they demo'd where the addition is attached.

But nature seems to keep things in balance. Further along the wall we could hear cheeping. I know you probably can't tell what is going on in this pic so I will tell you. About 2 feet below the top opening in one of the rear walls is a nest of baby birds. We put the camera over the opening and shot blindly.

The back corner of the house is a little skewampus so Tom and Matt push it into place.

Matt standing proudly (and rightly so!!) in the doorway of his first two walls!
