Larry the mason, himself, and Tom-builder, deep in discussions about brick and stone detail. I've learned the difference between soldiers, row-locks and bats! Very exciting stuff. . . . (and no, I'm not being facetious!)
We also met some new people today. Finally, the new crew! Here's Lou on the left, and Randy - the foreman - to the right.I noticed a long rope with an empty collar tied to one of the worker's jeeps: turns out that Jack-dog had retired to hang out in the back seat. Gotta like his owner - Jeff - for bringing such a cool dog with him. . . .That's him on the studio roof below, sorting out the raked portion of the re-built stick-built part. It's looking good.
From a distance, all those guys swarming over the house in dark clothing look like ants!The sun has turned the building site to mud. . . .
But look here, they've staged the guesthouse trusses in the courtyard, and Tom-builder says there's a crane scheduled on-site tomorrow to put those up, as well as the tower roof.This oughta be good! Things are going to be looking rather different as of tomorrow. . . .
