Nickel on a string

Do you find yourself dropping your nickels?  We did, and so we came up with this really ingenious idea.  By drilling a hole in the nickel and tying it to a string so that you can fasten it to your belt.  Silly?  I think not.

Nolan and Paul use the nickel on a string approach to gauge their gaps just right.

So after another long day of work, we were able to see the end soffits in finished form, the dogtrot started to take form with the cypress, and the corner trim was attached on a few corners.  Might I say, it all looks really really sweet!  With each day of work, we are able to see the progress made.  We’ve been making good strides as of late and moral is high as ever.  We have a little over a week until review.  It’s going to be great having everybody out to check out what we’ve been working on.
