Latest Trackplan

As I move along on the building, I am trying to finalize the trackplan. I had worked on it some but am not the best at visualizing space. Having the building there has helped to point out things I didn't think of.

July 29th Update

Have almost finished OSB'ing the outside walls and have stick built the trusses. Just need some help in sheeting the gable end and raising it. I can't do that by myself.

Hot Dry Summer

The summer is getting pretty hot and I think the last rain we had was in May. Anyway construction continues. At least I have the 2nd floor down and am finally in the shade.

Finally Got Some Days Off

Not much progress last week. I was out of work from Wed-Fri. Thought it may have been a gallstone or gallbladder problem. Huge back pain with nausea and abdomen pain. Taking Vicodin 2 at a time. Awoke Saturday feeling fine, went outside for a while and worked in the yard. Whatever it was must have uh, er, passed.

Went down to the new train room for a real test. Got 3/4 of the 2nd floor bridges done, and went Sunday to get 24 sheets of subflooring. Sarah and Tammy helped me get 5 sheets up to the 2nd floor and I did one sheet by myself. Don't think I'll do that again. The steps are mostly finished and 1 interior wall will be finished tonight.

July 4th Update

Haven't stopped long enough to take a picture lately. I told Sarah if she would help me raise the 3 walls, we would take the Sea Doo to the lake this afternoon. Temps have been in the 90s and it's really wearing on me once the sun gets above the trees.
