Went Hunting

While waiting for the construction to begin, time came for a long ago planned trip to go moose hunting. The following are some images from that trip.

Departure day: Truck and trailer loaded and ready to go.

Back of the truck’s bed.

House goes up…

When work finally began it would figure that I’d be away for 3 weeks moose hunting. The contractor needed to raise the house in order to put it on a new block foundation.
