Preparing for the reciprocal roof… again

Last week, I managed to cut down a dozen more black locust poles for my reciprocal roof frame. I will switch out the current rafters for these newer, beefier ones, and the old ones will become secondary rafters. Recently, I have been working more slowly thanks to some killer rainfall lately – last week, we had nine inches dumped on us! This year is truly incredibly wet. (Figures that I decide to build a house out of dirt during the rainiest year on record, too…)

I transported the new trees to my property with the help of a few folks, and hopefully I’ll have enough energy to strip them all this afternoon to have them ready to hoist up tomorrow.

Here we go again!
