When I say that we built our house, I mean that Mike and I were the ones who manned the hammer, pounded in the nails, and used the measuring tape and level. Yes, we had other people help, especially when it came time to hoist up each 20 foot, 4x6" beam. The main construction, plumbing, and electrical work were our own handiwork. We've had some repair work to do over the last 25 years but I don't think it was any more than a commercially built home. A while ago, Mike discovered that the side wall of our A-frame
was separating from the front. This week, Mike and a neighbor worked to fix the gap.
It has been extremely cold this week, for Texas that is. And, it has been raining lightly for 2 days. It won't deter them...
I'll just make a dutch oven full of something warm to eat and make a pot of coffee to sustain them. I'm thinking chicken and dumplings. What do you think?
I'll keep you posted.
