Now that winter has finally arrived I have a two week break that has allowed for some time to build main floor walls. After clearing snow and ice from the tarp, the main floor deck appeared to have survived the fall rain and moisture without any major swelling. I now have two walls up, and expect to have the other two up over the next few days. Raising a 34 foot wall alone is an exercise in patience and safety. Although it is time consuming, there is considerable satisfaction in knowing what is possible through simple use of levers and braces.
