48 viewsI *thought* this was going to be the last pour, but there was 1 more...
52 viewsBack in the carpentry area, Christian and Briar nail together a section of roof.
49 viewsJosh watches as Briar works on the roof.
46 viewsSome of Ismael's pets.
44 viewsThey were none too happy with our choice of lunch (turkey sandwiches) and they let us hear their displeasure!
55 viewsBriar, Casey and Ashley pose in front of the pile of walls and roof! Tres amigas!
50 viewsThe weather cooperated as we prepared for Saturday dinner. Our solar showers were comfortably warm after laying in the partly cloudy conditions all day.
46 viewsOur tent community!
46 viewsThe showers (as they were) with grape vines in the adjacent field.
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.
48 viewsThe walls for the back bedroom went up next.
43 views...then the rest of the walls and back door.
45 viewsOnce the walls were square, the 2 sections of roof were added. Briar peers up through the rafters.
48 viewsMy view from atop the newly added rafters.
46 viewsHis concrete job done, Steve watches as Jim guides the rest of the frame together. Mark, Angel and Christian wait for orders!
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!
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.
46 viewsAubre joins the nailing crew.
49 viewsMark & Briar do more work on the bailing wire.
41 viewsThe roof edge is finished, bird barriers nailed in place, and Christian, Ed and Erik start applying the tar paper.
43 viewsIt was impressive to watch so many people do so many different tasks simultaneously. A miniature Army!
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!
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!)
40 viewsMore tar application- messy!
