I spent the day applying housewrap. Lots of ladder work. Another new skill mastered. Another small step forward.

I got 100' of the walls covered. About 76' to go. And if I can ever get the snow and ice off my sub-floor, I'll lay down some plastic to further protect it from -- snow and ice.

By January, I'll need to take a break from construction and just spend a couple days felling trees and burning old wood piles. May have to do an overnight to watch the fires.
