the truss

YEAH! guess what!? we have a truss and thats just the beginning:

Today the brick layers closing the two gables, tomorrow the first window is going to be installed.
The one behind the tree – It’s huge – therefore we need to built it in before we raise the first interior walls.
Unfortunately I was wrong with the size of the window… oh boy! so we (speaking of WE I mean Martin) removed 3 centimeters of concrete!
Our dear friend Ben (hey mate!) told Martin a common phrase… “In Australia we say: Measure twice, cut once!”
So true!… anyway… thank god, the concrete was chisled away in half an hour!

After that we finished our day with a cold dink under our new truss… while Ray, Schorsch and his girlfriend Rommy dropped by and we had a little topping out party and enjoyed the last rays of sun.
the beautiful measure twice sign is by the very talented Mr. Parsons, check out his work here.
