IMGP1468.jpg
55 viewsBriar, Casey and Ashley pose in front of the pile of walls and roof! Tres amigas!

43 viewsSunday Morning! The concrete was hard enough to hold our weight, and we started setting up and racking the walls. Erik manages as Mark holds up the back wall that abutted the existing structure.
IMGP1473.jpg
48 viewsThe walls for the back bedroom went up next.

IMGP1477.jpg
46 viewsHis concrete job done, Steve watches as Jim guides the rest of the frame together. Mark, Angel and Christian wait for orders!
IMGP1478.jpg
47 viewsI was busy with putting plywood on the roof, so this is the next picture I was able to take! Josh is trimming the edge of the roof, and Briar is collecting the sawdust in her hair. Everyone helped knock in nails for the bailing wire (you can see to the left of Erik), which provided support for the eventual application of tar paper, which also supported the chicken wire, to which the stucco was applied. Phew!
IMGP1479.jpg
45 viewsGuided by Jim (and the chalk lines that Chriatian & I applied), Kyle and Savannah nail the plywood to the rafters. Angel and Ed look on, ready to lend a hand.

IMGP1484.jpg
41 viewsWhile Ashley & Casey watch, Cathy, Alexa and Shannon present some of the local children with small trinkets and crosses. Then, off to play Soccer and Baseball!
IMGP1485.jpg
44 viewsA short time later, the roof tar paper was applied. Here, Kyle & Andy apply the tar that went between layers of asphalt strips. Aubre and Savannah wait to nail down the next strip. (Thanks to Casey for snapping a few pictures!)
