move in day

on saturday we installed the show! I had six generous friends join me for donuts at 6 am to load walls into Brad's trailor and caravan to NNU.
Brad is the fabulous framer who built the walls I designed to be the structure for the show. Without his skills I don't know if this would all be possible. Thank you Brad!
The other fine gents who used their muscles this day were dave w.,dad, papa Jerry, peter j., chris & reed. I felt so helpless holding the camera while these guys were honestly flipping walls over the awkward Brandt Center staircase. The structure was installed faster than expected because of the mighty strength and I have spent all following hours in the gallery piecing the home together. (until tonight)

I am pleased with the progress but I think I have been thinking about this and looking at it too long to fairly judge.

Last night Shaun, Reed and Tori kept me company and were wonderful puppeteers.
I am off to sleep. Oh how I've missed it so. I hope to see you who are able, Wednesday!

Oh goody. This is my first time looking at your blog. It's like I hit this blog jackpot after a blog drought. I used to be an avid blogger with another blog host but hadn't given it much thought after my blogging community died off. And then the men in this household said "Did you know that Chad and Shaun regularly blog and we've been missing out on their juicy (not so) blog secrets?" And I said, "No, that's totally lame. Let's blog our hearts out with them." And so now we are.
Your installation made my heart jump out of my rib cage. It was so well done and thought out and beautiful and I'm proud of you. I feel this huge pressure coming off of me just because you finished it. I'm so happy for my friends. Cards and Junebug and TGIFridays (I guess.) Soon. No more painting excuses. Cheers.
