the house is moving right along. the old ugly rusty brown colored roof is gone!! YAY, no it is light and pretty gray/white. they tore a lot of the siding off today and put new boards underneath, i don't know what they are called, and then wrapped stuff on it to keep water out. kevin put a pull down ladder in the garage attic so we can use it for storage and it will be more convenient and safe to use. ryan loves it!
