Doors Get Installed

We had some delays with the roof steel. Apparently when we measured, we forgot to carry the one, cause we ended up short on steel and fascia. To use up the time, Jason, Tim, and I set all of the doors. It's pretty straightforward on the basement walls but on the log walls we had to bolt a heavy aluminum channel to the logs to straighten them perfectly, cut a groove in each wall, and then pound in a piece of angle iron to hold the walls in place. Then the jambs had to be set with slip joints to allow for log settling. Once all that was complete the doors were set and trimmed out.

We were also able to get the last window set. While the boys worked on that I got the well power conduit placed, the wire run, and stubbed through the wall. Here's how it all turned out.
