Approaching the finish line (sort of)

Well, another very productive weekend comes to a close. Yesterday was a little slow because I went for a dive in the morning, then did a dump run. After spending a couple hours shingling the shed roof, Jen and I went to Movie Night at Holly and Cher's (we watched Hellboy).

Today, however, we got a lot done. Erik showed up at 9am, and we loaded up his pickup and my Jeep and went to the Algona transfer station. That got rid of almost all of our debris pile.

When I got home, we made a run to McLendon's for felt and roofing cement, and then spent several hours finishing the shed roof (including the skylight). The only thing left to do on both roofs is to finish the ridge cap, and we'll get the 3-tab for that tomorrow.

Once the shed roof was done, we fired up the Bobcat to do some quick razing... er, I mean landscaping. Here's the huge bush-thing that was crowding our evergreen:

Here's me firing up the Bobcat:

After a bunch of yanking on the bush-thing, it finally surrendered to the Bobcat. I drug its corpse into the cul-de-sac as a testimony of my power to the neighbors.

While we were working on the shed, Jen was experimenting with some yard work. For once in my life, I'm actually getting excited about working in the yard!

My folks leave for Utah on Wednesday, and we're headed to Vancouver Island on Thursday, so we really only have two more days to get the weather barrier and windows installed. Keep your fingers crossed!
