Progress on the shelter




We got the first crossbeams up today. The roof looks flat, but there is a slope to it. It is just an illusion because the land is sloped there as well. We spent a bit of time with levels trying to get the roof up as high as possible, and still have a slope to it for runoff. Unfortunately the land slopes to the left, and away from the camera, so we had to deal with leveling it in two directions, and the posts at the far end are not as tall as I'd like. That's what I get for using the posts we had on hand, instead of buying ones that were as long as we needed. I think it will be ok, and Houdini looks like there's still room for him in there. There's more headroom for llamas at the other end.
