Oh, these first weeks were exciting as (big) things started happening. Once we knew we could proceed – that’s just what we did. Every week we thought we would get more done than we did, but still, there was progress. The weather was generally great – not too hot, not too cold. A bit too windy. At times we had real concerns of things blowing apart before we could get them stabilized.
While we (Dan mainly) were framing I had to spend many mornings at Home Depot and elsewhere ordering materials and picking up supplies – or taking things back. I had wanted to design one section of the framing all by myself but the timing never worked out for that. I cut many of the boards though and did a ton of screwing in plywood between floor, walls and roof.
