General Pictures

Insulation detail in progress.

The seemingly endless task of hauling old wood off to the recyclers.
An inside view of the roof structure. Its a shame to cover over the good looks of this, but it will receive insulation and sheet rock.

Working on getting the siding back on the building. Here the new second window opening for the second floor can be seen.

The new second floor, a start.

In chronological order: 1: The new main beams for the second floor, they finally showed up from the mill. 2: Setting the first of the two main beams. This was all the reach my hoe could muster. But she did a fine job and saved lots of backbreaking labor. 3: The new main beams in place. 4: I just couldn’t resist being the first person on the new second floor! But I did have to use a ladder to get there…

The dreaded new roof...

Here is the new roof structure being added (first picture), this was a planned portion of the job. However I was hopeful that I wouldn't have to take the roof off, as you can see it didn't work that way. Here is the new roofing going down (picture 2).
