The Stairs Are Up and the Last Windows Are Installed

Marvin has been working on stairs a little at a time this week and had them rough finished by Friday night.  Saturday was unbelievably hot and humid.  The day began at 72° with 91% humidity; by noon it was 77° with 86% humidity.  It felt like a sauna inside the barn but Marvin toiled away in it, finishing the blocking and other little details.

In my last post, I said that I just couldn't lift those windows so they were going to have to wait until someone stronger came by.  Well, my dear brother-in-law made a trip down here to lift those windows and get them set.  Whew!  One step closer to being able to put up siding.  We probably have to order a new front door though.  One day when both ends of the barn were open, a not particularly strong wind blew the door over and broke the plastic trim around the glass.
