Methinks it won’t be too long before I join the midweek crew.
Thanks Carl!

Folks,
          How about an update about the Engine House? It has been since April 11 that anything was posted here. Such a wonderful project!

Not much to report - we're waiting on lumber.

All the roof framing was finished on stall 3 and most of the roof sheathing over stall 3 is complete.









New window openings were framed in the back wall of stall 2 and the office was framed in.





The door header was put up at the back of stall 1 and the wall sheathed.
