    The board approved a budget request for the mill so I could get the lumber stackers out of the elements. I got a good start on this the past weekend.

    I got the post in and then it was to get the retaining wall started.

    The next step is to put the rafters up and then the tin. This is to get the lumber stackers out of the elements.

    Clayton,
    The WMSTR Board appreciates that it appears you are using good, straight lumber from somewhere other than your sawmill for this addition. We really did not want to spend money paying for an addition using any lumber that you put out.:aetsch:

    Looks good!

    Thanks,
    Pete

    Looks good Clayton!
    Just a couple questions for you what type of wood is that? which way is the grain going? did you use screws or nails? coated not coated? what length nails? how do they compare to modern nails? :rof:

    I suppose that exhibit is too modern for wooden pegs, or square nails?

    In that case... Torx drive all the way!

    You are so funny Ned :rolleyes:, I have started to use glue, there is no need for any tools that way.

    Went out and got some more done so the crew I lined up would be able to get right at it. IMG_20160506_171115868 (1).jpg

    Jane came out and helped me put four of the rafters up on Friday evening. It was so windy I almost called it quits, I wouldn't quit though cause I wanted to be ready for Saturday.

    We had the rafters up by mid morning and then moved on to the perlins, and some braces.

    Forgot to show how things are at Earls Mill, you walk in and there the store has your order ready to pic up. Even though there was no one around.

    It was too windy on Saturday afternoon with the few that could stay. So we quit early for the day and went home. Don't you know, when we got home the wind went down. So the roofing crew went out early on Sunday and put the tin on. That crew consisted of Jane and myself. We had it on by 10:00 AM.

    That's enough for this weekend. I took my bride to the DQ and we were home by noon.
    I forgot to mention the crew consisted of Brother Craig, Brian Hruby, Adam Meyer, SD Jon and Gayle, Jane and myself.

    Hi Clayton,

    That is a good looking roof! I am glad you had a good crew, that always makes the project go better.

    Later,

    Looks good. Wish we could get out there more than we do.
