The Project in Pictures 📷 - Issue #46
By Lee LeFever • Issue #46 • View online
Friends, I’m hoping this message reaches you at a time when you can relax and enjoy a few words, a set of photos, and a video shot from a drone.

If you’ve been a reader since the early days, you know I spilled a lot of ink in the preparation phase. We planned and moved and assembled all the pieces before anything actually happened in the real world. To me, it was perfect because there was so much to write about. Instead of excavators, concrete, and 2x4s, I had words and visions of the future.
Those days are not over. I still have plenty of words and we’re both learning every day. But now, the house project has entered a new phase where words can’t do it justice. Ceiling trusses and framing might make for an interesting essay, but probably not as interesting as seeing them in photos and videos. They tell a story more efficiently and with more color than I can muster. And truthfully, I love making media and want Ready for Rain to be a multi-media experience. 
So, this post is different. I’m letting photos do most of the talking as the house goes from a footprint to a building.
