July 2010: Gave teh two finger salute to the bossman and joined the ranks of the funemployed. Not now paid for hard work but getting a house and lifestyle out of the bargain. Hours are long but rewarding and I'm getting fit and strong to boot. Poor old Dana is still slaving away selling suckers to windbags (she works with vacuum cleaners!) while I get to work in the bush. What a trooper... It's a harsh deal but, unfortunately, I'm better with the hammer and the buildy-stuff.

|are we bored yet?|
Jul/Aug 2010: Sol the mad chippy and his mate Phil the slightly less mad builder came and helped us prep the gorgeous red ironbark poles that help hold the whole thing up. Meanwhile, steel UB rafters were sourced and rolled into a slight curve (250 x 145 @ 31.8kg/m on a 65m radius for those so inclined) in Melbourne before shipping to Ford McKernan Engineering in Euroa for fitting of cleats and 90mm SHS poles. The bush poles will be visible and the steel ones hidden.
|I had to choose only 3. Wanted them all...|

...part 3 coming soon (Mawson's hut, evil weather, fun with backhoes and some more progress).
