Finally, we get a respite from rain and bizarrely late snow and can get some work done. Spent the day working on the stringers that will carry the 1" pipe that holds the barrels in place. These are 2"X6" treated wood, and each had to be drilled with four 1 1/2" holes to fit the pipe.
Next up, assuming the weather holds, we'll be screwing the stringers between the two 30' 2" X 8" sections that make up the sides of the barge and sliding the pipes into place. More later.
Progress.....finally. At the moment, I need a bath and a glass of wine.
