It took him the whole day on Wednesday to do it, but he wanted it done before the rain started, and he just made it.
Thursday is a day off for him as it is to rain all day. On Friday he plans to run the rafters across the east side to the end. He hopes to do the other valley over the weekend and start on the front porch.
