Dave and Russ we finally got the last wall section up at 9:30 pm. The bed is calling. I sure hope the truck doesn't come to early in the morning.


Here Comes The First Main Beam

Here Comes The First Main Beam

We were hoping the truck would come later in the day but he showed up at 6:15am!! We all jumped out of bed and started our 12 hour day. This beam would not go in at first but Dave used a long 2 X 4 and spread it apart and it fell right in.

Got it!

That was no easy feat. The directions said that a crew of two could put them all up in a day. I think this one took about 6 hours.
