"...our other house was building."

In A Bride Goes West Nannie T. Alderson, a true frontier woman, talks about her first very rough home out west: "We didn't mind the hard things because we didn't expect them to last....Our little dirt-roofed shack didn't matter because our other house was building....We didn't expect to live on a ranch all our lives --oh, my no!"
Oh, Lord, help me not to mind the hard things.   You said, as you prepared to go, that you are building a mansion for your brothers and sisters.  I don't expect to be here long.
