Day 8

Today we chipped away at more plumbing inside the house, more digging of wall and doorway footers, and finishing screwing the roofing and fastening the flashing to the ventilation boxes.  I was really excited when they started opening the boxes of our greenhouse slanted glass!  Brian, Nick, Osmany, Rob, Smiley and maybe more that I didn't see carried over and installed all of our exterior glass today!  It looks more and more like a house every day!

rainwater collection off of roof... yes, the water has to go up and over that little barrier
