Saturday was a wash out but Sunday was the most beautiful day ever. We woke up our first frost of the season on the windshield of the truck but that quickly disappeared and we were left with clear blue skies and 16 degrees, perfect fall weather for working outdoors.
Whats left of the load of poplar logs we had delivered in May have to be sawn before winter so we decided we better get at it.
On the weekend we started on the second side of the shipping container board and batten project.
All dressed up and no place to go!!
We didn’t waste any time getting back to operation cleanup!! The next morning we headed out and first up was loading the newly re-built wood bin with the pile of maple firewood we picked up for free in Guysborough. We had to cut and split them. I just set aside any that were too large and they would be split smaller later.
Back breaking work.
Before we move on to the other side of the shipping container we decided to do a much needed cleanup of our work area. In the background of this pic you can see the 2 large piles of logs that need to be dealt with.

Finally a perfect storm of good cooler weather and Jim feeling better got us back out to work on the shipping container board and batten.
When we last talked, the shipping container progress looked like this…
I was wishing for a cloudy day and today started that way so we were out ready to work by 8am.
Good sized logs.
Back to work on the shipping container.
