Cris from Ranserve installed the last panel of what will be Jadin's shower, tensioning it into place with 2x4 lumber. It took a long time to get all the parts on site for what should have been a simple kit with everything stuffed into three or four boxes for shipping.

Framing the garage

We go away for a week and, surprise, the framers are hard at work on the shed that comprises the new third garage bay at the back of the house.

Installing the laminated beam across the front of the garage. The shed roof defines the structure as modern, simple. The tall box will be spanned with decking to create tons of loft storage.
