Every Muscle in my Body Hurts Right Now

The pavilion so far - Ground girders, 5 columns, brackets and C channel on two sides. Right on schedule.

We got a lot done today - and I am totally beat right now. We got 4 more columns installed, and X-Bracing brackets as well as C channel around what will become the low roof. I'm totally in love with the steel right now - I think the dark green paint we chose looks great and especially with the galvanized bolts. So cool.

So we got to work early this morning cleaning up and organizing the site, moving steel and garden pieces and getting ready for the afternoon craning. We also got a bunch of columns up and we were rolling really well but we had to pull off and move to crane duty around noon time.

Solveig and Meg assembling columns and angles.

Solveig and Meg cleaning the steel columns - we tried to get at least all the areas around the bolts painted - saves a lot of time cutting in once its installed.

All together now

Jason bolting the C Channel in at the top of the columns.

Johnny: directing steel assembly - you sure have built something awesome here my friend.

We had another big load come today and we had some . . . troubles . . . but we got it all up. We had to really move fast though (had some, um, governmental issues - so we had to get everything off the street as fast as possible), and so for about three hours I had to run downstairs, help load the Lull, then run up 5 flights as fast as I could so I could direct the crane from the roof, help unload everything, and then repeat. After about the fourth time running up 5 stories of stairs I was about as sore as I've been yet. But we got it all in, and thats what counts.

So we lost a good chunk of the day to the craning, but we still got to play with plenty of steel today. I've never done any steel work before, and its pretty fun to work with. We are bolting everything together, so its kind of like a big lego set or something. Bolt the angles on, bolt the columns in, bolt the top channels in. Easy as pie right?

The roof right after the craning. Holy cow - what a mess. There is soooo much stuff on the roof right now. We need to take a couple hours monday to organize.

We aren't allowed to work over the weekend, which just kills me cus' it is going to be beautiful and we could get so much steel up. But, no arguing with the Dept of Buildings unfortunately - so we'll be in the shop trying to help the west garden crew finish up and starting to disassemble and clean the shop. The 'shop' is actually our studio and in two weeks everybody comes back to start classes - so we have to get it all back into school shape. Also - I'm sorry that all these pics are kind of bad, they are just snapshots from my phone. Hopefully when we are all together in the shop tomorrow I can get some better shots from people - I know Marianna and Solveig have been taking lots, so I'll tr and post them if I do. For now though - I hurt everywhere and I need to sleep.

It's in fact very complicated in this full of activity life to listen news on TV, thus I simply use the web for that reason, and obtain the most up-to-date news.

I'm impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that's both
equally educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head. The problem is something that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I stumbled across this in my search for something concerning this.
