progress report: the great room is pretty great

yesterday the weather finally broke and we saw the sun again, the temperature even warmed up to a balmy 45 degrees, very pleasant working weather.  björn was out there with his crew, mario and glen working very hard to meet our goal for the day.  we wanted to complete the south wall of the great room and to finish a few of the headers in areas we build in the last two days.  we also worked on cleaning up the site, spreading hay to mitigate some of the mud and mess.  it has been a goal of ours to keep our work site very clean and organized because a clean site is a safe site! sounds cheesy, i know, but it is true, and we can't afford to have anyone get hurt

we are also happy to have björn's grandparents, bob and shirley, visiting this week.  most of the photos below were taken by shirley, she is one of the best people to document events so i am so thankful she is here to help take some great photos.
