18th Posting - Top of Back Wall Framed Up

Work on the 'roof' has begun, even in January! The walls are built to over 8 feet high all around, and  on Thursday my sister Valerie and I framed up the back wall another 3 feet with 2x6's and two very sturdy window frames for a couple 2x3 windows. It was a beautiful day in the 40's and we finished just after sunset. The next step will be laying I-Joists from the back wall to the front wall and then the plywood is ready to go on the roof.
