Blog Post 062618 Trusses Go Up
Friday the 22nd dawned cooler and drier than the previous weekend. By noon we had a couple workers on site to continue with the sheathing on the buildings and preparing for delivery of the trusses.
At the main building, work continued on forming up the patio and concrete walkways which had been rained out the previous weekend,
