I realize that I must first apologize for the long span between posts. The point was really driven home when I was recently asked if we had abandoned the brewery project!
I am here to assure one and all that we have not abandoned the brewery project. In fact we are just getting back to work on the brewery. The problem is that much of what has been done so far this spring has required small crews so we have not yet been able to have the big work parties of last year. But fear not for we shall soon have one!
The biggest thing we have worked on has been planking the roof. Loyal readers may recall that the last work party put up all the rafters. So the next step was to plank the roof. However, we were not able to get that done before the snow flew (The day the rafters went up we had ice on the deck and the nail guns were malfunctioning due to the cold).
The following Sunday Tracy's Uncles Vin and Greg came up. This time Vin had the honors of the "Man on the Roof" while Greg and I supplied the appropriate sized planks. In short order the second side of the roof was planked.
Once again we must thank the folks at Woodell & Daughters for supplying us with some mighty fine lumber.
Hopefully, the gap between posing will be a little shorter from now on. Thanks to you all for sticking with me, the blog and the brewery.
