The blessed tarps. We didn't get the roof on in time, so we hauled out the tarps again. They have been useful to protect the wood while we work slowly toward dry-in, but they are cumbersome to put in place and always in the way. Since we won't be able to work on the roof for another three weeks, and afternoon thunderstorms are a regular feature of the landscape, the tarps are our only recourse. In the meantime, we will busy ourselves by testing wood stains, finishing electrical rough-in, applying interior borate treatment, and maybe installing a few windows.
