Cleaning up the struts for the cantilevered ledger for the porch slab with the wire brush
More work for the wire brush [well for E] - a cast iron grate for the interior
The top surface cleaned

Chipping away at excess concrete - another "easy" job

Door bucks going up - look below to seethe difference from last week

Brother James visits and works non-stop for 6 days

James working very hard drilling holes in concrete - its easier when it's just styrofoam!

Even I do some work occasionally

Getting the next layer of blocks trimmed and leveled

Up we go!

Bending re-bar out of the way

Me working again -  miracles do happen

Working out the tricky corner

Frame for bracing

Drilling the holes to secure the bracing

With instructions [for vertical]

No - it goes there

Piecing the bracing together - into the night
