Another Cupola Update

The last time you saw the cupola base, it was still in our barn and heading out the door to head over to Crump's barn.
 Don't ask me why there are bubbles all over this picture, but there are.
The cupola base is safe at Crump's and it's sitting right next to that handsome black car that dad keeps telling me to keep my noseprints off of!
I sure wish I could get behind the wheel and take that baby for a spin!  Who wants to go with me?
 The cupola is being built in 3 sections.  The above picture is the base that sits directly on the roof.
This is the body that we're working on and it will have clapboards and trim and windows added.

 Uncle Phil and dad installed a new window upstairs so I can keep my eye on who's coming and going!

The sheet rockers are working and the bathroom is coming along beautifully!

Today is my mom and dad's anniversary.  They've been married for 39 years!   I sure wish I could have tasted some of their wedding cake!

So until next time............

Love ya lots,

At first I thought the bubbles could be snow, but your roof can't be missing can it?

Happy Anniversary!! 39 years that is awesome!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Happy Anniversary to you mom and dad Mitch! 39 years, is wonderful!
I think the bubbles might be the magic bubbles that Sasha and I sent to you- Do you think?
You sure are doing a good job keeping track of stuff, and snoooopervising!


Hey Mitch,
Firstly, a very happy anniversary to your mom and dad. 39 years is an awful long! Congratulations to them both for putting up with one another :)
Secondly, I have no idea what a cuppola is, but I must admit that I am intrigued. Our houses here in SA are mostly made of brick, so these timber terms are a little foreign. I must say that it looks like some serious craftsmanship going on there. Amazing stuff!
Love the car too. :)
Sending lotsaluv

Happy Anniversary to your mom & dad. Are you sure those bubbles are bubbles and not orbs? Something to think about. Can't wait to see the cupola in place.
