The Hat Goes On

Yesterday, the roof of the cupola set down on top of the body.
Mom and dad are scrambling to get the cupola ready for the raising this coming weekend.   
 Molly is busy helping mom sweep the floor inside the barn. 
 That's our friend, Brian inside the orange monster. He's an expert at driving that Lull rig. 
Up we go!
 Almost there~
 The cupola will go on top of this red barn - Crump's barn!
 Peeking inside while dad bolts the roof to the main body. 
 Dad left roof boards off so that the Lull could lift the cupola safely.  He's getting ready to replace those roof boards so we can finish shingling.
 Would you be brave enough to ride that monster?
Mom sure isn't!  You couldn't pay her enough to try that out!
So today, it's back to work on the cupola.  We have lots of work to do to get it ready for this weekend's raising. 

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

Love ya lots,
Mitch and Molly

As always we adore your photos! My Jeannie says she is with your Mum on the big monster machine, no way would you get her up there!

It is all looking so beautiful! We could have done with you guys around here last week to help "raise" our new wee hoose!

Your dad is very brave to get up there! My mom can't get 4 feet off the ground on a ladder!

The cupola is definitely a work of art! We can't wait to see it once it is placed on Crump's barn!


Gus said...

Woooooo..that is pretty high up. Tell your dad to be careful please, and that too much sunshine is not good for him!

Our Mom wouldn't ride in that thing either, especially if she had to lean over like your Dad did!!

We adore your header photo - and getting to know Molly.

Wow! your dad is fantastic and he is so brave. My mom has height issue with her all the time; she won't climb up any ladder at all.

The cupola looks great!

Lassiter Chase and Benjamin said...

Wow! Your dad is so brave to go up that high! Tell your dad to come over our place and trim some tall tree branches ok! It was neat seeing the cupola going up -- never thought a monster would have to be called in to do the job -- butt I guess some monsters are helpful afterall.
