All the joists are up

Report and photo by Dennis Casebier

Mr. Cordova and crew worked away until about 1:00 pm today getting the rafters in place on the Freight House section before knocking off for the weekend. Just eye-balling it I'd say they've got about half the rafters and all the joists up.

The crew will be back to continue with the rafters early Monday morning. After that I believe they'll be putting the layer of composition board on top of the rafters.

This place is a beehive of activity. In addition to the contractor's crew we have quite a number of volunteers here right now working on various projects. There is a high level of esprit de corps that moved in as the dominant element of ambience when construction started.

It continues overcast and cool here. No wind.
