Finishing the roof and the Starting the Garage

Plywood went up on top of the trusses. They put those 2x4s on the roof so the guy has something to stand on as he is placing the plywood sheets.
It was creeping watching him walk around up there. He said he is so used to it that it is second nature for him.

Trusses were put up over this little spot in the living room. The area is 4 ft wide and at least 7 ft long. We are going to put an access door in the boy's closets and that is going to be there little fort. Cool beans!

The garage walls are being constructed here.

And now for more trusses.

The spot next to the house that doesn't have trusses up yet is going to be our closet. It is 6 ft wide and really long. Not sure how long exactly b/c we will have to see exactly where the trusses fall.

Then there will be a door in our closet that leads to the attic storage over the garage.

Yay for storage!
