We thought of that, oh well.

Back in the Hawk(Tomahawk, Wisconsin) after the blessed event which went down in Madison.

Just built a big fire to warm up the house.

Back to work on the van tomorrow, praying for sun.
Cold tonight, 10 degrees F.

Had to hammer on some decking that can handle water...exterior plywood.
The rails will be cut off and a bumper added, the decking is close to the finished length



Got the window in, have to say it was a bitch but in the end it fit.



The door isn't really hung yet but the frame fits.



Back at it in the morning.
bill

A cold wet day and night here in Wisconsin. The Packers beat Minneapolis so all is very well. Home in the woods.

"Grandpa was a carpenter built houses, stores and banks

Chain smoked Camel cigarettes and hammered nails in planks

He was level on the level and shaved even every door

And voted for Eisenhower 'cause Lincoln won the war."

Blown out and searching for level...



The persuaders


Sorta square?



Plywood doesn't lie(factory edge).



If you get it up , keep it up.



From the inside out...


Progress.
