The weather, my progress, and a buddy all finally lined up together so we got busy tonight. Just barely outworking the dwindling daylight....

Unseasonably hot for mid-October 

All four walls up and temporarily/reasonably secured just as it became too dark to work. 

The Indy-kiddos are getting excited!

Roof is up.  This was a bit tricky. Took three men and a winch to get it up there. (Pre-built with plywood attached)

Got out back and worked in the sky again today.  The holes for the windows got cut out. 

 

And now with 300% more windows.

 

Indy-kid #1 is getting more excited with each step forward.

In reply to SVreX :

Look back a few pages or so. Indy-kid #3 pounding nails on the deck when I hammered my thumb.

In reply to fasted58:

yep. Look in the distance here:

And right outside the window:

I got the sheeting up on the last wall.

Stopped by the habitat for humanity Re-Store and bought a few hinges:

Then hung the door.

Indy-kid #4 helped out today despite the cold.

It's like a real construction project. Twice the estimated budget and Four times as long to complete.

Remember this?

 Withthe Einhorn gone to become someone else's project, and the Jaaaaag home safely, some time finally freed up to get this closer to completion.

Indy-kid#2 was a big help.

Time to create an access point for entry.  Mostly cut out a rectangular hole....

Position some hinges. Add a few temporary screws... Finish cut and open.
