A third row of posts were also set up on this day. They weren't very tall so they were raised by hand.

Remember the walk up the driveway before the project began? All there was was the hole. This is what it looked like.

That's the progress as of yesterday. If all goes well, today the rest of the posts and girders will go up today.

Stay tuned.

We got most of the purlings loaded on to the girders today. It was Zac, CJ, Gary, and myself. I'll have pics of Saturday's efforts as well as today's progress posted soon.

I am so tired. I only had 4 hours sleep last night.

Stay tuned.

> 4 hrs sleep...

Boasting, eh Rudy? We all know you're having too much fun to go to bed on time! And now I bet you're gonna get all whiny and nod off about 1/2 way through tomorrows posts... <G>

My first month here afforded me a lot of time to post. Now I got some work to do. At my age, I come home very tired.

Looking forward to a couple of days off to get caught up.

Hang on.

Yeah, I know. I find it really good to nap out for 30min every day. All is fine until I stop working, then POW! Down for the count. <g>
