Thanks Dave.  And no kidding. The long one is 345lb so one end is 175.  I made a little dolly to transport them to the spot and then i put them on the FEL.

Bob. That may not be a bad idea.  I’d love to spend some time in the PACNW one day.  Let’s get Nate to come and we can build and cook together.

Well now, we could have a real barn raising if and when we ever close this thing. When I find a place to put a shop and  get the county to agree that is.

Wait wait wait, I don't even own the place yet. I would hate to start planning a barn raising not even knowing where the barn will be. I sure do appreciate the thoughts however.

Nope.  Trying to keep the architectural style similar to the other structures.

95 and humid as all get out today. Despite using powder I have a bad case of monkey butt.

Leave it to you Charles to overbuild a ramada. Use it to winch and engine swap a Cummins while also being tornado proof.

Dang Charles, did we really need to know that?

Was about the same up at the ridge, but crazy windy. I looked like a dust bowl after clearing brush.

TMI alert...One time I had a real bad case of that. I resorted to using diaper rash cream. Now I keep a tube in my pack. Works wonders.

Harvested tomatoes again this morning. It’s getting out of control.

Harvested about 25 lbs to go with the 15 pounds I already had on the counter. 

Time to break out the pressure canner and jars.  18 quarts of tomatoes up.

So when you say spicy, you mean CA spicy or Tx spicy?  Just checking.

Here’s where I left it today. All the rafters are cut and a little more than half hung. Ran out of Simpson rafters hangers so I hope the rest I ordered are in when I go to HD tomorrow.

Rafters all up. Making sure they are all square to the ridge beam and nailing them in.  Then hurrciane straps on each tail and then snap a line and cut them off at 14.75 inches to get the overhang correct.

Then I’ll start the lookout rafter and barge rafter construction on the gable ends.  Then 23/32 sheathing.  Then order the R panel roofing to match the houses.
