There's a Roof!!
Going by the home site on Monday with my mother I was blown away at the progress that Ryan Homes has made with the house. There's the beginnings of a roof. When we pulled up to the lot the builders were in the process of putting the trusses onto the roof portion of the home. We actually got to see them take each individual piece of wood framing and place it on the home. The best way that I can describe it is like someone putting pieces of a puzzle together. It was great to see. I was so happy I jumped for joy (literally). I was like a kid on Christmas morning. Once the roof is on, they'll start working on the plumbing and electricity on the inside portion of the home and hopefully then at that point we'll get called in for our pre-drywall construction meeting. Below you will find some photos with pictures of the builders putting the roof on our home. Until next time, happy blogging!
The crane placing the trusses of the roof together. There are workers on the top most portion of the home who help guide the pieces into their appropriate places.

Windows! Super excited to see those.
The crane was placing a piece towards the rear portion of the roof.
Here you can see a worker guiding the crane to the wood piece that needs to be placed on the roof next.
The worker is hooking up the wooden piece for the crane.
Mission accomplished. Wooden piece is hooked up and en route to its proper place.
This is the puzzle piece I was talking about.
It literally snapped into place with some help from the workers. You can see one pictured in the window however there are about 3 or 4 up there.
