Elections and Equations
Its November 4th. Election day! Because its priority and my duty as a proper American, I woke up bright and early and headed for the poles at 7am. (I know you ALL did the same thing right?? )
I was back at home by 8am and ready to smack some nails!
George and I had a pretty good day. The weather was gorgeous yet again and the conditions were perfect for barn building (which I know is bound to change soon).
We got all of the beautiful diagonal framing done (George's own design and signature style) all while I received some extremely overdue and really engaging math lessons refreshing my memory of the Pythagorean theorem (I never thought I'd say that). Remember? A2 = B2= C2...you know.., "The hypotenuse of a right triangle is equal to the sum of the other two sides". Well,... turns out it comes in pretty handy in the real world. I guess I should have paid more attention sophomore year in highschool instead of drawing my best friend Allison caricatures of Mr. DeGeorge, our geometry teacher. (a.k.a. Mr. Spacely from the Jetsons ;-) Boy, did he get pissed....but the drawing practice came in pretty handy too!
Anyway, We wound up finished most of the prep for the roof system which we will definitely need a few extra hands to complete on Friday. I am really looking forward to getting that gorgeous rust red tin roof over my head!
