I think from now on, I'm going to be uploading weekly photos, rather than posting the day-to-day progress. In the beginning, the progress was on a large scale as the building went up. Now the progress is more small scale day-to-day so to see it weekly will make it have more of an impact.

These next photos are from yesterday (Thursday):

The forge roof is done on the north side.

The header and cripples are in for the forge window. It's being made and will be ready in about 3 weeks.

And half of the roof on the south side of the forge is done.

These next shots are from today:

The facade, complete with rakes and the drip edge.

Will framed the overhang. It looks great.

Keith finished the roof on the south side of the forge.

And Will did the strapping on the forge wall. I asked why this wall was strapped when the others weren't and it's because they're using ShipLap on the forge walls. These are wide boards that are rabbeted and so interlock with each other and give a nice rustic look. They need the strapping to have something to nail into.

Here's the tiny piece of rooflet.

It's totally amazing! That is the best bead cottage ever. I'm thrilled you are enjoying the torch time again! That is wonderful!
