  • Insulation: Check.

    Insulation is installed and drywall is being installed this week.  Having a new place to hang our hats is getting closer and closer!  Life is good!

    The checker at the store asked our always conversational little boy what his name was. He replied "Jude" then added "but sometimes they call me pumpkin brown". LOL.
