Shingles, Siding and Sunset

One of the most wonderful things about living in Southern Oaks is the sunsets. Here's a view that Chrissy and Stan will have out the back door of their home.

The 1oo degree temperatures didn't stop these builders. This week we got shingles on the roof, siding on the house and the window and doors were set.
