I noticed the lack of posting, and was hoping everything was okay! I'm glad it was "just" data running out.

Nice progress on the house!(Especially in this awful heat. Stay cool as best you can over there!)

Thanks Nichole,   I stop about 12:30pm and wait until I feel it's cool enough (meaning later than 4pm) and work until 9pm  -sorta cheating but still gets things done

Last posting showed the uprights of the north wall being carved and set....

added the north plate and asked 9, Kyle, Pierre to help me take it off.

Recarved the north top plate. Placed the north top plate back on.

Secured south wall to both plates and added a window sill on the south wall.

Secured north wall to both plates.

a time space hole opened and a billion other things happened too but this is what I'm posting :)
