Nothing slows down Muskoka. Rain, snow, sleet or hail.

Before opening up the site, I visited the surveyors TA Bunker & Assoc. They are working on the site grading plan, getting it ready for resubmission to the town.
Doug, acting as school bus driver, and Mister Snyder delivered truckloads of teenagers to continue erecting the garden shed. They got the top plates and roof trusses on. A couple of tall, strong lads helped me pound metal fence stakes around the property. They had to return to classes around 11 AM. They plan to return Monday afternoon to install the roof sheathing and fascia.
Backyard neighbour Doug (not Doug Patterson) gave us 2 metal shelves for use in the new shed. I loaded up the trailer with brush and debris and took it to the dump. I also return the rented fence post pounder-inner and finger blisterer.
Rob: Return scaffold to SMS. Contact neighbour to south regarding use of power and water. Build Committee meeting early next week to plan. Deliver tarp.
Vince: Follow-up with Bracebridge High School
Doug: Pick up students Monday at 12:20
Friday- Sunday – Nothing, site closed
Monday – GHS students return to work on shed. They will leave the school around 12:20 and finish by 3 pm.
The next major item is the excavation, but I want to wait until we know for sure about the site grading plan.
GHS won't be able to do the shingles, so I bought a tarp to protect the plywood (but left it in my car).
