Wow!
Nothing like a roof line to make things look homey...
I like how wide it looks -- that's a roof to do things under! Do you have a fiddler lined up for your kitchen, yet?

*whisper*
are you going to nail a pine bough to the "ridgepole" when the roof is done?

I don't think so. I am not familiar with this custom.

All I need to know about the kitchen is where the M&Ms are kept. No fiddler but it will have a cable outlet so she can watch her soap operas in the kitchen. She is roughing it now with an antenna.

I hope that link doesn't run on into the next county, Gentle Mac. The pine tree to the ridgepole is an old custom. At home in England we used a flag and mistletoe to celebrate a building going up. It's just an old tradition -- for good fortune.

Does this mean you're leaving the position of kitchen fiddler open for now? ;}

Elena has fiddled with the kitchen all too much. It cost more than the garage!

SBH said...

Ah, but the machine shop in the garage isn't supplied, yet. That ought to add a tidy sum to the cost.

I'm so excited for you both!

THAT'S what I forgot at the store yesterday!

The new house looks great! And I agree, they're moving very fast!

The roof shingles should be on this week.

I have bridgemix now. Mmmmm!
