We had 6 inches of rain in 6 days. If you want it to rain, just get me to start an outdoor project, and it will start raining soon after...

Slowly making progress. The  rain is not letting up. It has turned the build site in to a mess

At least the roof is on and I got the outside “wrapped” to keep the rain off of it. It’s going to rain another 1” over the weekend. Hopefully I will get a break to finish the siding next week.

Hy moet kies tussen “home schooling” of werk by die cabin. Hy gaan miskien nie so goed lees eendag nie, maar ten minste kan hy sy eie huis bou.  ;D

Cabin is looking great!

Very muddy and boggy, will you drop some crushed stone there to firm it up for future use?

Or will the grass grow back and keep it firm?
Young enough to know I can, old enough to know I shouldn't, stupid enough to do it anyway.

When the mulcher came in I asked him to put the “head” down in to the ground to mulch up all the roots. So the top 10 inches is loose topsoil/ mulch. I wasn’t expecting 6” of rain though. It should compact again (hopefully). Once all the building is done i will do some landscaping to divert the runoff away form the yard site.

I finally had days off when it wasn’t raining. Got the tin roof done, and the soffit and facia. Also got the stove installed. And I realized I am not 21 anymore....







Hopefully tomorrow I can do the deck and the deck roof.
