Well dang it. I had hopes yesterday that today would be even more awesome in terms of "things getting done", but that turned out Not To Be. Oh, well.

The framing crew came up and did a few things on the porch and the upstairs fireplace in the library, but left halfway through the day when they ran out of supplies.  The stonemason guys are waiting for the fireplace framing to get done before they can begin their magic so they didn't show, and the roofers didn't come up because they thought it looked like rain at Tanglewood from their location in Pueblo (there wasn't any). So basically the only folks who went up today were the framers for the morning, Solar LeRoy's crew, and of course Colleen and myself.

I spent the day helping Solar LeRoy haul more panels up to the site (up that trench--yuck) and sorting out lumber for the solar shed. I had had hopes of actually working on the shed today, but the other tasks just took more time than I'd thought they would. Solar LeRoy got four more panels installed, but we hauled another half dozen up to the road just above the shed, so at least we got half of them off the trailer. Colleen had a quality day picking up drywall and construction mess; we ended up hauling 8 (heavy!) bags down at the end of the day.

So there we go. Everybody promises to be up here on Monday... hope so!

Having a flat spot is danged useful...
Looking at the panels from the shed. At this angle, there's not really much to see, is there?
Looking down the row of panels. Yes, they're a bit crooked right now; they'll get straightened out a bit with washers and whatnot later.
Better shot of the current install from slightly below the panels.
