Day 6: Building the Door Buck and Roof Plate

19 03 2009

Today was awesome! We, Rick and Randy and I, built the whole roof plate start to finish AND put up the door buck today. It was relaxing compared to the rock foundation, haha. Anyway, although I am a couple days behind from my original construction schedule, it looks like the total structure will get finished by Sunday, which is AmAzInG.

This all means that TOMORROW we will be raising the straw bale walls! YES! I am really excited about this. Optimistically, we can get started on the roof too. If any of you reading this are interested to come by for a couple hours, I NEED YOU 🙂 I can use as many helpers as I can get. Check out the pictures from today….
