#75 – Help build a house

My best gal and her gent have been building a house from scratch in Athens, ON since April 2011.  It’s been a crazy, amazing and inspiring journey for those of us watching from the outside (I suspect they may have more choice words to describe the process).  Elizabeth has been documenting her story at her awesome blog Our Deliberate Insanity, which I highly recommend you start reading from the beginning.

The last time we helped out with the house was last fall, and are lucky to be able to say we helped raise the first walls.  

They are in the final countdown of finishing the house, with an end goal of the September long weekend.  So after a delicious breakfast of blueberry pancakes and peach jam, we headed outside where Tyler taught us how to install strapping.  And away we strapped! 

Thanks to Ty for the strapping lesson, supervising us and trusting us not to break the house and to Liz and Jennie for providing commentary and taking photos!
