The objectives for 2015 were to finish the installation of the ceiling boards, to backfill the open water line trench, to finish the logging activity, and to make some progress finishing the exterior log staircases. The ceiling boards and the waterline and trench were completed. Half of the logging was completed, and all the final treads were installed on the front porch staircase. It was a successful year.


1/8/15 The scaffold has been reconfigured under the Grid B1-C3 bay. You can barely see the fan blades interleaved between the 3rd-tier cross brace behind the stovepipe. You can also see the first four courses of ceiling boards are in place just above the Grid B purlin.
