At the beginning of August, Joseph and Caleb went to our cottage, the Barn!
|Crossing the Blue Water Bridge|
|Installing the outside shower|
The main reason that Joseph and Caleb went up to the Barn early
was to help Aunt Sharon (and crew) make her cottage a year-round home.
- Putting on a 2-story addition on the back of the shack with a basement underneath
- Building a garage
- Winterizing the whole entire house and a lot more!
|The first step was to dig a basement|
|Sunsets at the Barn are always breathtaking...|

|The big digger getting the hole deeper...|
|That's quite the pile of dirt there!|
|The basement is dug!|
|Pouring the cement for the wall foundation|
|Meet Hannah, Aunt Sharon's cute little dog :)|
|Caleb found these newborn birds|
|Looking out from the foundation of the house|
|The walls are coming!|
|The newest motorized vehicle - a jet ski!!|
Not bad for 300 bucks!
|Don't you hear the sun sizzle as it hits the water? :)|
|This crew works fast!|
|Putting the finishing touches on the cement foundation of the new basement.|
|Believe it or not, this isn't painted!|

|The back of the shack|

|Hard-working guys - Dave and Joey have been a huge help on this project!|
There's a lot of catching up to do, so get ready for lots of posts!
