Busy week

Yesterday and a few days before we drove over to a friends place and helped them work on a pole barn they had started and wanted to get done before snowfall. We left our place early to get there about eight o'clock each day that we went.

The first couple days we fixed trusses and put a few of them up on the walls. The building was one that was taken down a few years ago so a lot of the trusses needed repair.

When the trusses were up we nailed on the cross pieces that you see in the picture above every two feet for the tin roofing to be screwed to.

The pink insulation we stapled down before the tin so that water in the air wouldn't condense on the tin and drip after it was finished.

We had all the roof tin all screwed down before we stopped for lunch. Then after lunch we put up almost half of the wall tin.

This is where we stopped for the night. We ate a good supper and then got home around 10:30 pm.

This morning Dad, David, Andrew and I went out on the lake skating. The ice is somewhere around three inches thick in most places. We went out to the peninsula where the beaver lodge is and back a few times (about a quarter mile) and only heard an occasional crunch in the ice so it must be thick enough.
