Camp Hearne Diary - February 2, 2010

Can you believe the walls are going up.

I met with Matt and Jim Monday to discuss the window framing. In order to support the roof, a double header is necessary, but the plans and photos for the sliding windows only show a single header.

Stark Truss was the low bidder for the prefabricated trusses needed for the modern area of the barracks. After weeks of delay, the delivery was finally Tuesday. Unfortunately, there was a discrepancy in our OH dimensions. As it turns out, extending the rafter tails will accommodate a vented soffit to the exact length... so all is well.

Rain is in the forecast for Wed and Thurs. After the summer drought I really hate to ask for dry weather.
