Our Angel Showed Up Today . . .

late in the afternoon and it was perfect timing!!  Again!!

Kelly and I had just gotten the back wall up, both the felt and the siding and almost totally nailed down . . .

Kelly and I thought we were just about done for the day but Elder Woolley gave us new energy and we managed to make most of the trusses, get the top plate on the walls and get several of the trusses installed!

We are hoping we have another rain-less day tomorrow so we can get up the third wall and maybe the front wall before the rains start up again on Thursday!!  Quite interesting to work your outdoor days so much around the weather!!
