Okay, if you have any construction expertise, please avert your eyes. Our finished goat shed may not be up to par for you. When John asked Girl 1 what she thought of the finished product, she gave us a long, "Hmmmmm."
He then interrupted her with, "Listen, it's not bad for having been built by two people with degrees in the humanities!"
So, yes. It took us more than twice the time it would've taken a more experienced builder. And, yes, we mostly figured it out as we went and spent more time problem solving than pre-planning.
But . . . it's done! It was a big problem that was looming over our heads. And, it's done!
And, we did it ourselves! I mean, two days ago, there was no building there. Today, there is. And, it's because we built it! We are proof that a husband and wife team can complete a 2-day, labor-intensive project together in 110 degree heat and still like each other at the end of the day. ;)
I know it's hard to see what's going on here, but I thought the church in the background would lend perspective to each picture. This one was taken before we began the project.
