The logistics of getting that 300 pound beam over our heads and up against the rafters has caused loss of sleep for me. Of course the Cowboy probably knew exactly how he was going to do it and today was the day. As I’ve said before, thank goodness for the backhoe!!
After the beam was in place, the Cowboy removed the remainder of the ceiling joists. We will insulate against the ceiling and hang drywall. It’s going to look great!! Exciting!! And now the roof doesn’t sag!
I had the urge to cook today. Pot roast in the Instant Pot served with mashed potatoes/gravy/carrots and the best broccoli I’ve ever eaten. Of course the Cowboy didn’t think it was so great–he doesn’t eat broccoli.
