Arched Cabin Build – Day 2

Brian took a few photos mid-day.  The crew was amazing.  Despite torrential downpours and pretty much nonstop thunder and lightning, they worked all day.  Every time the sky opened up, they covered the stuff and took shelter in their trucks.

End of Day 2 – At the end of the day, we walked over to the property to feed dogs and see where the crew had left off.  The floor was completely done!  This is the view from our bar-ditch (the cut above the building pad which channels water away from the house).  View of driveway and house.

Where's waldo?

It’s another Where’s Waldo [but look for Sydney].

In addition to giant beetles, world's most painful wasps, and terrifying scorpion/spider monsters, we have hoards of snails.  They don't think things through - when it rains, dozens are cross our porch...and get stomped on in the dark.

End of Day 2 – Messy hair and squinty eyes but big smiles.  Making progress!
