Finally after much rain and generally bad weather we got to start the walls this weekend. The walls were harder to put up than we’d expected. As the wall got longer in length, the harder it was to keep stable. It was all we could do just for one person to hang on to it, while another person got the next panel and upright.
But with perseverance, we got the main walls up.
Then in order to stabilize the whole structure, we jumped ahead a bunch of steps, and added a couple of roof struts, out of sequence, just so we could leave the thing another week without having it fall down.
Hopefully next weekend (if it doesn’t rain) we can add the last of wall panels, and get the roof on. If it isn’t raining it has been so blisteringly hot, you can’t stay out in it more than 10 minutes at a time. Stay tuned.
