"If you are still in the process of raising children, be aware that the tiny fingerprints that show up on almost every newly cleaned surface, the toys scattered about the house, the piles and piles of laundry to be tackled will disappear all too soon and that you will—to your surprise—miss them profoundly."
-Pres. Thomas S. Monson

Week 9- Two steps forward, one step back.

Frustration. Disappointment. Exhaustion.

That pretty much sums up our week as we ripped out lots of the work we had completed in the weeks before. All of the doorways in 2 houses had to be rebuilt. Trusses are off. We ended up behind and didn't get trusses on the second house this past Saturday because we had to fix too many mistakes. 

The stair cases that we have been working on have all been installed incorrectly. The top stair being 1 inch shorter than the rest, and therefore against code. Do you know how hard it is to rip out an entire staircase? How about 3? And expensive! I'm hoping that our supervisor comes up with a better solution, and that this next week we see more steps forward and less steps backward. 

There's always an up side. These sunsets!
