Frame Work!

So, y’all know we have a slab poured.  Next stop, frame work.  I’m super excited about this for several reasons.  In no particular order.  1.  I can see my drawing come to life.  2.  Addie finally realizes this will be a house with rooms, not just a slab with walls.  3.  I can finally know…
