It was still only 32 degrees and snow on the ground the first thing this morning so we stayed at the house for a while waiting for some of the snow to melt and for it to warm up a bit. On the way to our land we stopped in at Annie's Kitchen and had breakfast. I had French toast and boy was it good.
Before we could build I shoveled the snow off of the floor of the barn. We have started called the shed The Barn for some reason so I'll be referring to the building as that now.
The sun came out and soon warmed things up and before long all the snow melted and it was actually quite pleasant working. We started working about 10:30.
We got the second floor joists done and here is Ken working while I'm walking around taking pictures. I was soon back helping though.
I took this picture of the underside of the second floor.
After the days work we went back to the house, got cleaned up, had supper and once again stopped at Lowe's and got more building material for tomorrow. We got 20 pieces of plywood for the sheathing which we will start tomorrow.
I usually help Ken load up all the lumber on the cart and then load it in the truck with him but today a couple of nice employees asked Ken if he needed help and I said, "Yes, Please." So I got a break!
So this was day 6.
Only a day and a half left before we have to head back home.
I took this picture laying down in the back of the truck looking straight up.
A happy day to you.
