We spent a quite night by the fire and did little more than watch a good
Robert De Niro movie "Score".
Got cold last night and was helping a friend get his water running this morning.
Also started a brisket at Barry's for tonight's feast and dominoes game.
I took advantage of the nice weather this afternoon to work on the floor .
Finished through bolting the frame and installed 62 rafter ties (hurricane ties on the coast) on lower floor , getting ready to move on to framing and roof by February.
The wood burner with a 8" x 20" piece of oak. The coals have been hot for a week.
Getting ready for some very critical and necessary extras so this thing won't launch with the up to 80 mph winds that role through in April and May.My daughter caught me working.
I have never used these ties for any type of foundation work until today.
