Week of May 16th
We have had a few setbacks.... mainly the wind which has not allowed us to frame the outside walls. Our latest plan is to try for 6 p.m. on Tuesday as the forecast indicates that the wind will be down to 5 mph. The roof rafters are waiting, and we would really like to be to enclose the house asap.

We can't bring the earth back up against the foundation because it has to be inspected first. The inspector was to come last Wednesday and it appears that they closed down their business. As anyone who has ever built a house, there are always glitches and challenges. So far, volunteers have been great and what has been done, has been done well!

Check back for updates. We will see how Tuesday goes, and plan from there.
