Trimming the Shed

They like the result but they're almost tired of trim

Peter Came by
He put the lights under the awning so the steel can be trimmed around it, smart!

I am amazed we don't need Band-Aids


Looking Good

Barn kittens

Our internet needs fixing so today just a picture
of our kittens (for Olga) 

Cutting Steel

This takes lots of time

working with very sharp edges
Lots of corners to be covered

this is a decorative vent

going up on the front

making it a bit of a challenge to put steel around it

this picture I took a tad late
Jonas was going up with steel in each hand

Bruce trail Bayview Escarpment

We already started with nice views

The trail changed due to people going on the trail with dogs
the dogs chased cows and the farmer refused to keep the trail on his land

we ate some black raspberries, yummy!

once in a while beautiful views,
this would also be a nice hike when there are no leaves on the trees

rugged rocks

love this picture of Hanne, knitting is relaxing for her

some more views

and some open forest
we saw 3 tents, people hiking through for a week

A Shed gets raised

The front wall of the second part is going up

Time to raise the trusses
 Fred is checking if everything is clear for lifting
up she goes
Amos holding one of the guiding ropes
Danny gives instructions to the crane operator

Terry and apprentice Dakota

untying the ropes 

Next part

Ezra working on squaring up the trusses


The shop front part is strategically placed

and raised
Jonas seemed the most comfortable with heights

Nathan hammering the wood over the steel rods

Alvin's dad drops off steel
he told me "Steel is going up"
and then he smiled pointing at the crane lifting the roof steel

for us it was a morning to see others work
