Monday and Tuesday are a wash-out as the rainy remnants of Fay kept us all at bay.

The framers return Wednesday morning and leave at the end of the day with things back on track.

And now that a sizable portion of the structure is up, it’s time to start correcting some of the abrupt downward sloping of the lot. Along with a very substantial bit of red at the far end of the lot, new dirt arrives and the graders, with their trusty Bobcat, get to leveling.

Much, much accomplished, despite the shortened week. The roof trusses have been specified and ordered; and, what little framing that’s left before those arrive in 2 weeks, will be finished up next week (follow that?).

Grounded.
