No building pixies
We started off the day with by putting up one more beam, 4 more ridge beams to go. Then we moved on to wall framing and by the end of the day we had 5 done. It's very satisfying doing the framing and Natasha and I get a really good rhythm going. We can't wait to put them all up and walk around the house from room to room and then get our framing inspection done. It's another great milestone to aim at.
One thing that is strange at the moment is working the week in the city and coming to the site after 5 days away and seeing no change. I had hoped that perhaps in our absence some building pixies may turn up at night and do a bunch of construction for us. I've been wondering if I ought to leave out a glass of milk and a cookie for them to try and lure them on site, but that's Santa isn't it? What do I use for pixies? Pixie Caramel?
