After all the help, I slowed down and paced myself for the long haul.
Dan made a comment that the first day was fund and the second was like work.
Well, the next nine days bordered on torture.
Jennifer helped by assembling the rafters and helping to lift them into place.
Keep in mind that these rafters are 20 foot long and 4 x 8 in dimensions. BIG and HEAVY are a mild description.
The worst part was pulling down my rafter that was too small. Live and learn...
As a house warming gift, Wayne bought me a SawzAll to put nitches in my tree. It really sped things up. What a great invention.
