    Good morning,
    Many of you know that we recently moved from TX to NW Arkansas. We've been working on our house when we have a minute away from our jobs. When the last cold spell came through we had a nice snow. I wanted y'all to see the progress of the house and our first snow of the season. We are doing most of the work ourselves with some help when it comes to the heavier stuff like the trusses. Since we are not carpenters, it is interesting. We're using several books for information as well as asking lots of questions at the lumberyard. :)

    That was a pretty picture. I love that you have a huge pond right out front. You can sit inside and look at your pond. I cant wait to be in your shoes.

    Nice place. I love it.

    One suggestion for you and any other people who post pictures on HT. If you're using photobucket go to the last choice on the "Tags" under the picture in you album and copy and paste the tag into your HT threads.

    If ya do that, the picture loads here, and your readers don't have to click a link to go over there.

    Just a suggestion, but I see a LOT of folks posting links when they could be posting pics instead.

    Thank y'all for the wonderful support and compliments. That's why I like sharing with folks here. I guess we all have so much in common that it sometimes makes us closer than family.
    Also, thank you for the tip on posting a photo here. I know many folks are able to get them on their post, but I wasn't smart enough to figure it out. :rolleyes: :baby04: So, thank you again for letting me know.
    Hugs to all,
    mamabear
