Well not much work on the house has got done these holidays. I felt I wouldn't forgive myself if I didn't build the children the cubby house we have been talking about for years. I aimed to have it done by christmas day and I almost go there. It still needed flashing on the roof and a door. I managed to use about 90% recycled materials from my house which helped reduce the cost. I am eager to insulate and line the interior... but that can wait for now... Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone.
