Roof workers arrived Friday to pressure clean the roof. With Tom Sharrett on site as well, their compressor was accompanied by the sound of a radial arm saw cutting cypress boards to length. The roof crew was back today and appeared to be putting the finishing touches on. See more in the September Gallery.
Summertime in Florida is hardly the best construction season, and the carpenters - more like furniture makers - have to make the best of any opportunity to work in dry, sunny conditions. On Wednesday, that only lasted half a day, as usual. But as with the blocks, once the beautiful cypress is installed, it's done. No painting or decorating needed, so each new board adds a "finishing touch" as soon as it is put into place. See more in the September Gallery.
