Long day

I didn't sleep worth a hoot last night, but I still got up at 5:00 and scooted on over to Wilderstead. I spent four hours building a set of beams. I need to spend my next several visits raising them.


I like big beams and I cannot lie

Actually, this is three beams. In order for them to fit together properly with their ginormous tongue-and-groove joints, you have to build them as a set, then separate them for handling.

I was just finishing up the set when the guy from REMC drove up. We had a 1:00 p.m. appointment. I've now got a local electrician working on my project. I've had the County building inspector out twice. And now REMC. Working toward a plan to get service out in the holler; hopefully, in October. But once I've got all three of those guys on the same page, I have to get my neighbor with the excavation business to dig me some ditches for conduit.

Festina lente!
