Second story walls framed

Report and photos by Dennis Casebier

All four walls of the second story room of the Depot got framed today.

The Cordova Crew showed up at 7:00 AM. It was a cool 44 degrees on the front porch with a pretty stiff wind out of the northeast. The framers pounded away out there on the roof of the Depot end of the structure.

Mr. Cordova hopes to have the rafters up tomorrow and the plywood sheeting over the rafters by the end of the week. He may call for a "nail-shear" inspection this Wednesday, that being the day of the week inspectors come out here.

Phil Motz went to Mohave Valley with his little trailer today to pick up the conduit and other supplies (including wire) that will be needed to run electricity from our newly constructed Power House to the Library/Depot. Gail Andress is coming on Wednesday to dig the trench for the electrical line. Phil has hopes of having the conduit in place before he leaves one week from today.
