As the construction crew put the last roof beam up, we had an impromptu topping out ceremony today at the Bunny Bungalow. You probably know that this is a tradition of placing a small tree (usually a fir tree) atop a building when all the roofing beams are in place.
Tall Husband found a small Laural tree in the alley that had survived the recent freeze and that's what a member of the crew placed at the highest point. The crew is Hispanic and not familiar with a tradition with its origin in the European culture but they were eager to help us celebrate.
