This morning we retrieved the previously abandoned log, brought it to the skidway, and I rendered it into the last of the floor joists for the yurts. We made really good progress today I think. We finished the cutting of the floor joists, then I continued to saw up the pile of slabs into 1" boards. That still was completed by lunch, so in the afternoon, Grandpa and I spent our time levelling ALL the beams at the yurt site. We now have the beams in place, and have begun transporting the joists to the actual construction area.
Tonight Donna and I moved a few more items to the tent using our own little wagon. We spilled it twice, but nothing serious. Then we discussed a few more possibilities regarding where to locate outbuildings. It's always nice to connect like that - it prevents us from getting too disparate of ideas that would need to be reconciled later.
It's also been really gratifying to hear back so much feedback from my dojo. My sensei posted a link to my posting about the tent, and I heard from a number of my friends back at Golden Triangle Aikido. I really miss them, and am happy to count them as my friends.
This week is suppose to be pretty rainy, that's not so nice to hear - but we take it as it comes. If it rains, I have a number of items to pick up in town, so I'll just make use of that time. As well, I ordered gravel, and that's likely something I can push around, rain or shine.
