He's Baaaaack!

Dylan and Jared left on June 3rd planning on being interior for a week.  The problem was that MAF hadn't checked out/opened the airstrip yet, so they didn't have a scheduled flight out when they arrived.  The 7 days turned into 12, but they were able to get a lot done, so, besides being pretty hungry when they got home, it was a good trip!

The view as you fly in- not too shabby
 
First they put the posts up
 Then the floor beams
 This is where they stayed.  Dylan slept in the hammock and Jared in the tent.
This was their shower spot (Something to look forward to for Rich, Derek, Evan and Dakota:)

Then came the floor joists

They took a few shots to show that they were working:)
 


 On Tuesday they thought there was a plane coming that was going to take them home so this was them saying 'goodbye' to everybody.



That flight didn't work out, so they stayed until Friday. 
And they got some more work done on the house.


 Aren't these kids adorable?
 They also did work on the airstrip.
 They even got a little bit of framing up for the walls!
 On Friday they said 'goodbye' for real:)
 And then MAF came in with the Kodiak and officially opened up the airstrip!  This is a huge answer to prayer and will make our lives soooo much easier.  I tried to load the video of the plane landing on the blog, but it wouldn't work.  I put it on Facebook if you want to see it.
