Erections

The Husbear has grown tired of scraping frost and ice from the windshields in the winter time, so he wanted a carport. So we’re building a carport. Well, I’m building a carport. He’s assisting me. Not that we don’t have enough projects we’re constantly working on.

Lowe’s Delivery shorted me 10 pieces of roofing, which I finally received today. So barring any rain this coming weekend, I’ll get those last pieces installed.

There will be one other vehicle bay, but that won’t be built until sometime next year. We have to level the land for it first, but that won’t be until next year. But at least for now the Jeep and the Prius have a place to sleep.

Until next time...

    1. Thank you. I do my best to do what I can myself. We’ve talked about taking the panels off, but with as much work as that would entail, I’m sure we’ll be leaving them on. We tend to get a lot of hail in these parts, so it’s always best to be prepared.

  1. Dear God, don’t let him drive that tractor again when he is leveling land! The rollover was scary. Happened to my husband too, years ago. Waaaay out in a far field on a hill, as in about 2 miles from our house.
