Captain's Log -
Saturday we were able to frame up the walls of the cabin, put on the trusses, install all the roof sheathing, and erect the one and only interior wall. We were also able to finish putting on the rest of the steel on the other structure and caulk and foam seal all the openings. We finished around 9:00 that evening.
Sunday we put on the steel roof, flashing/trim, roof cap, wrap the walls with Typar, cut a hole in the roof and frame and install the components needed for the wood stove, install 4 windows, 2 exterior doors, lift Jake's deerstand into place and add cement to the post holes and clean up the job site. Everyone was quite tired and sore by the end of the day.
On a more dissapointing note, most of us were put to shame by the work ethic and endurance of 71 year old Tom Manual. We can only hope that we are able to do half of what he did when we are that age. We wouldn't have gotten nearly as far without his experience and Steve's.
