Building the Vardo Framing the walls and roof

The two side walls and the cross pieces for the roof are in place.
Because we are using white oak all the framing is screwed together (rather than nailed). White oak is a very hard wood.
The strings you see dangling from the up-rights are Pete's plumb lines of sorts. A way for him to 'eye-ball' the angles of the walls.
The pictures below show the progress up to the point you see in the top picture.
Second wall framing is going up. It's summer and Pete's in his favorite 'work clothes.'
The framing began with one wall.

Masked Avenger, Aloha! You have been my heroine, and have truly given me hope in the days when home was the Subaru and challenges were unrelenting. Thank you for showing up here, it means so much. Mokihana
