You may not have notice, but the roof to our cabin is very high and steep. This can make roofing a little tricky. So, we were thankful to have some help in this difficult stage. The night before Jimmy was supposed to start the decking (the wood that goes on top of the rafters and under the shingles) we got a phone message from our friends, the Moores, asking if they could come out to the next morning to help us build. When we got their message Jimmy heartily proclaimed "Thank you God!" and then quickly called them back to say "Yes, please come help!". Jimmy and Matt completed the "easy" side of the roof. That is, the side without windows in it.
So, a few days after the Moore's help, Jimmy's brother Ben came back and helped him finish up the dormers (windows sticking out of the roof) and the decking on that side.
Some people might say that a construction place is no place for little children. We would reply that it is a great place for them to begin learning custodial skills :o) Abigail is our ever diligent cleaner.
