Saturday 10/24: I have talked a lot about how cold the Saturday mornings have been but I would take anyone of those cold days for the wet rainy weather we had on Saturday. As much as we need the rain I wish it would come any time other than Saturday mornings. It was a reminder that our comfort is not what this project is about. We put the easy up tent up over the oven to protect the workers from the rain and to make it possible for us to the put the arches up and to start forming the outside walls around the oven. Nate & Jake learned how to use the blocks and lines to lay the block walls straight and even. Bob built the arches over the wood storage with the bricks that where donated by North Star Stone. He had Jeff cut the blocks that were needed to make the wall complete. By the time he was done cutting it looked like he had aged 15 years his hair was so grey. We joked that working with his boys was aging him quickly. Jeff & I appreciate everyone’s help with the oven but especially enjoy when both of our boys can be there to work on a work day because it gives our family a chance to volunteer our time together. Jake is gone to college and Nate is taking a college class that meets on Saturdays and works at least one weekend a month so being able to all be at a work day is a special time for our family.
