30 December 2014
Finally some progress as the frames go up. Hard for the kids to conceptualise all this work until this point.
Dwarfs the old plastic cubby sitting in the back yard.
We had made fairly good progress, it had just turned noon and we decided to start work on the roof structure. After our prototype truss which was to only be at the front and back of the cubby, I decided it would be far easier to just fabricate four of these than what I had originally intended.
Construction time for 30 December, which included levelling the last four posts, fitting the floor to the posts, constructing the front wall frame, mounting all wall frames, fabricating and fitting the roof trusses, ~ 5 hours.
