This dialog is an attempt to record in words and pictures the sweat and blood (insect bites) expended to create a recreational cottage at Jan Lake in spite of the rain, mud, countless species of bugs that all bite and long distances. It shall be done.

Roofing metal delivered and installed on south roof facing.
Gus preheated the cabin with smoke (unaware of tarp covering chimney). Blames malfuntioning stove.
The first week of October offered 3 days of nice sunny weather allowing the roof above the vol tedceiling to have the rafters put up (mucho heavy), rough wiring for insidelights and then sheeted (in the dark with lights up on a roof proved rather interesting). The weather forecast predicted rain, so tarps were put down (also at night) That evening the rains came and there was water leaking into the everywhere. However, as the saying goes, it was a warm rain and the final portion of the roof was complete sheeted and tarped. It snowed two days later. Hopefully the tarps held the H2O out.
