Finally, after all of the digging and prep work we actually got to put something up!  This was "The First Pole".  After this the frame goes pretty fast.  Thank goodness!

This is the guys putting up the first rafter.  They were 42 feet long and 7 1/2 feet high.  It is a good thing we have a backhoe. Below are more pictures of the rafter setting.







This pic shows the completed framework of the building.  Not bad for amateurs.  It is hard to believe that all of this arrived on one semi-truck.  The next step was the concrete floor.
