More Progress

More progress has been made on the kiln shed, the posts and beams are now up. The trusses will go up tomorrow. Father and son, Paulo and Alex, are the brains and muscle behind it all and they are doing a great job. The projected finish is next week.

Breaking Ground

The land is cleared of old buildings and bush hogged, now we are starting the kiln shed. We marked off the kiln shed area and started digging the post holes for the shed. There was a slight delay in getting materials, but they finally arrived on Friday. We will be ready to go full steam ahead on Monday. Check out my red metal roofing! It matches our new gate that will hopefully deter pear thieves. Yeah, someone came and took my two pear tree pear crop. I was quite disappointed and hope that karma takes care of this situation (worms in the pears?). I do not believe it was a critter of any type, one day the trees were full, the next wiped clean from top to bottom. We figure someone did not know we bought the place and assumed they were for the taking. But hopefully now it is clear. Not pictured a very nice "No Trespassing" sign.
