Winter Cover

The covering process is underway.  After 2 days of work the backbone of the structure is complete as well as all the rafters.  As with everything on Niagara covering is a long and somewhat difficult process but we have a very efficient crew lead by Bob the shipwright.  This is the fastest in recent memory that the rafters have gone up.  Here are some pics to show what we have done so far.

    Does this mean that we won’t be hauling a bunch of 2×4’s this Saturday? 🙂

    Yes, this does mean that we will not be hauling a bunch of 2×4’s on Saturday. I will add though that if anyone happens to be a chiropractor the crew could sure use one after the week we have had.
