Matt has been working on this thing whenever he gets a chance. At the beginning, there was a lot of discussion about placement, depth, height, how the structure would be supported, not impeding our nice view from the kitchen, etc. Then lots of string line to get it lined up. Digging holes, pouring concrete footings. Posts. Beams. Uh, those things that go perpendicular to the beams. A lot of temporary bracing and scaffolding. Painting. Painting. More painting.
Emmett wants to paint like Daddy.
But mostly, Emmett talks about how he will “knock down Daddy’s building.” Because in 2-year-old world, you build something and then you immediately knock it down. It’s the cycle of life.
