I helped Tate yesterday and been at it again today.. trying to get the stairs built to go up to the loft.. big beams, big slabs of Ash wood he cut out a few years ago and we have to mill them and get them all the same dimension, figure out the lay of the run and rise… he cut his finger this morning so Gramma brought up some band aids.. hoisting a 16 foot 8×8 beam up and leaning it the proper place and hitting the right mark.. it’s interesting but wish I was younger and stronger… windy today and chilly, tho’ not real bad… seems like we have so much yet to do on this house… oh well, when we are all done (if we ever are! 😀 ) we will probably forget how long it took!
