Walls and porches

A slightly larger crew, including Maria, the future owner of the new home, worked hard to raise second floor exterior walls, and part of the front porch on the Habitat for Humanity project on Pearl St.

I learned a few things about squaring a wall (3-4-5, the relative dimensions of a right triangle), and about how to move forward by repairing errors in measurement.

I've gotten a bit better at banging nails, a task which appears simpler than it actually is, and I'm officially a redneck, having forgotten my sunscreen.
