Well, I managed to get a little more work done on the walls a few days this week while I was home between tours. The pictures are colorful with the different tarps and blankets I have over the walls, but I use anything I can find to protect the bags from the sunlight. I took these three photos after I had the walls already covered up and ready for my absence for the next 6 weeks, when I have three tours back-to-back.
I next plan on working on the cabin between October 22 and November 1. It would be nice to get the walls finished during that time, but that may be a bit overly optomistic. The weather would have to cooperate well and I'd have to have some help filling bags as well, but we will see.
View of the front wall. The next step is for the 'support ladders' to go on above the door and window frames. Then I'll just have one more row of bags on top of that!
This is the southwest corner - also ready for the support ladders over the frames.
And the north wall needs another row of bags before the support ladders can be put on. The back wall (no pic) will still need several rows of bags and that's the real question mark, whether we can get that done in October.
