 I found more pictures from the construction of the 4 foot wide vaults over the living room in our house. Here's the step by step of how we put up the roof...

 Getting the vigas up here on the third floor was a fun activity for Noble and me. The vigas are re-used 14 foot long telephone posts.
 Noble set the molds mostly without me, thank the goodness or we'd have come to blows.
 Can you see here how fabulous this roof is gonna look?

So hard to photograph how cool the finished ceiling looks! Plastering this over my head will be procrastinated until next year... FUN FUN...yikes...

I was REALLY Bad at doing the blog last season. Noble and I set our goal for our fourth season (from November 2010 to April 2011) of working on our house to get the vautled roof over of the living room. The above photo was where we started from the end of the previous season. Here is a summary of what we did last season.
