During the manufacturing of rafters on Thursday, 3 days ago, Shaun suffered a twinge in his lower back muscles and had to slow down.

We discovered the rain was falling down when we wanted to start work on the new week, and the forecast had a high chance of more rain all day so we called it quit and did other tasks unrelated to the building project. Tomorrow, the weather looked much better so we hope for a good […]
