So, in effect, what stands now as Phase 1 will be mostly completed before the rest of the  building is finished?
Pray for early spring.  8)

Paul,

Our groundhog says it's going to be an early spring, so get that carpenter's toolbox ready.

Paul, that plan was announced back in December. We decided to get the 30x30 portion done so we at least have a space to use, but am hoping to have it all done before the first concert series.

Finaly back at it today after a couple weeks off. Fred and James cut the braces that go from the posts to the trusses this morning, and I monkied to get them on.. Slow work, but necessary. I think I'll add something to tie these together on the trusses. A little more bracing and install some pieces on the ends of the trusses and we will be ready to roof. And put the siding on.



Even Freds shadow is watching me..

This guy and I were at it again today..see him behind the pick-up cutting for me.



As nice as the day looked, it was cold. But we cut all the filler blocks that went between the south rafter ends. Look high. Barely noticable. To the left of the staging.



We then installed the Azec. Front first, then continued down the south side.



We also installed the metal drip edge, and this side is now ready for steel.





Next Saturday we will do the North side. Fred says I am too fussy because I take my time and check things often on the trim, but I think it looks good and am happy the way it turned out.

I'm glad Zack came up in the afternoon as we moved the staging to the North side.

Looks really good Mike.  Remind Fred that good things require patience.

Yeah, Fred!  ;D
Looks supreme!
Almost half the roof framing done.
If I had extra bucks I'd buy youz a sharp, new bumper for the crane truck.

A 2X10 would do wonders for appearance.

It's a RR truck.  The only appropriate replacement is a RR tie bumper.... 8)

Not our truck, actually, on loan from Chesterfield Associates.

Fabulous Fred and Fussy Fox were at it again today...wind blowing and about 24 degrees to start..

Before lunch we had this much done..









After lunch we finished the trim.





We are ready for roofing. We are looking for help for next weekend depending on the weather..

What great and appropriate names for our great leader "Fabulous Fred" and his chief minion "Fussy Fox"
