First Week of October, 2008

The first week of October offered 3 days of nice sunny weather allowing the roof above the vol ted ceiling to have the rafters put up (mucho heavy), rough wiring for inside lights 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.
