Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move

Men's Shelter IV, A Good Day's Work

 The work day started at 9:00 am and ended at 5:00. By 1:30, all the roof trusses and gable end were in place. Our picker truck operator was first class and had the touch! The 60 foot span trusses went in slick as a whistle.
 This is the first truss going into place.

I have to digress a bit here and relate an event that happened the other day. The contractor had a newbie from Grade 12, getting some work experience. Anyway, the two apprentices sent him into the construction trailer for a couple of sky hooks. This is sort of a right of passage, newbies picking on other newbies. Anyway, after a half hour in a very small trailer, he reported that he could not find any sky hooks. The laughter then started.
 The gable wall was set into position and the remaining trusses installed.
The last couple of trusses will be tied in after the fire wall is gyp-rocked and moved out to give the necessary 1 inch air gap. Part of the roof was sheathed and another work party is scheduled for 10:00 am Saturday.
