Chad’s neighbor, Dave, helped out by digging out the tree stump he felled by the house.

Cross beam is set on the side of the house. My dad built that barn in the background when I was a little (random, side note).

Cross beam is set for the front porch roof . . .

The first board is placed to attach the roof to the support posts and cross beams.
