Your getting there. You'll be under the tin soon. We got the rains here yesterday (and most of last week) too.

More expected today, so I'm going to hang a tarp off the rafter tails, so I can strap the walls. I managed to

get my tin on yesterday morning before the real heavy rains. Speaking of strapping. I was talking to a guy

the other day, who did many timber frame structures in his time. What you and I have been calling purlins, well

they aren't. They're just plain old strapping. According to him. Purlins are horizontal roof members that actually

carry the roof load. They span from bent to bent, as you'd see in an old barn. I looked it up in a couple of my

timber framing books. That's pretty much what they say too. So, I guess we can't play with purlins, unless we get

rid of the rafters.

Ordered about 300 feet of roofing. I also picked up frosted poly to help shed light on the enclosed side. The weather is looking cold/cool but NO rain!!

I drained the water from one of our Massey 2745's this afternoon, as it was mostly plain water after overheating on me a while back.  Yep, getting chilly!  

  Be careful handling that sheeting....gonna be breezy!

eww, snow. I'm ready for spring.

 

Yeah it looks to be a little windy. My FIL is supposed to be coming to help and he is a worker so we should have it up in pretty good time.

It was windy and cold but I took advantage of the grandpaws being in town. We got the lower side roof on and just started the other side. It should be finished up this afternoon. The supplier screwed up the order a little bit with the poly but I'll make due.

 

The '69 GT14 got the honor of staying under it's roof for the first night since it has pulled the tool cart during the building process.

Had a good church (announced the new addition) this morning and went to pick up Rebecca and the boy to bring them home. Got home to find that the grandpaws and one of my neighbors had finished the other side of the roof!!! So thankful.

plan there?

It's coming along nicely and having all that help really makes things go smoother.  Looking forward to the finished product.

plan there?

I'm going to put metal up but that will be a little later. I plan to run a wall down the middle and leave the upper side (where the jeep is) as a shed for the 28' camper. The lower side will get walls at each end and sliding barn door style doors... at least that is the plan. Regardless, I have to come up with the funds first. In the meantime I got a couple sets of braces up today and some more pictures. :D

Looking good. Nice to have a roof to put stuff under.

Will you be putting gravel down inside?

Oh yeah, if I didn't it would turn into a mud pit. Too much water comes off and out of the hill above so I will need to do some work adding in gravel, a couple of field tiles for drainage.
