Playhouse in Progress - Part III

Work on the playhouse has halted for the past 2 weekends. The first weekend, it was cold one day and then rained on Sunday. The following weekend was Easter and we were out of town. Todd had gotten the supplies to do the roof so he planned to work on it this weekend.

Todd's dad came over to help him put the boards on the roof and nail them down. They finished this step on Friday. Saturday Todd put the tar paper up as the base for the roof. Yesterday and today, Todd worked on putting the shingles on the roof.

It's really coming together now. The next step will be putting the walls up and then the playhouse can be used, even though there will be a few finishing touches.

This is the first big thing that Todd has built and I am so proud of him. He really wanted Michael to have a playhouse and wanted to do it himself instead of getting someone else to do it. I think it's looking great so far and can't wait to see the finished product!
