Lean-to construction, backside

This is the back part of the lean-to, connected to the barn, which wraps around the creek-side of the barn and will be used to store all kinds of materials -- pallets of cement, soil amendments, wood, etc. Our barn is currently packed with materials and we can barely walk around in it, so it will be quite a relief when this project is done. Ryan Stanley and Judd Owen, two of our neighbors down the road (who also work at Out of the Woods, a local outfit which does forest restoration and milling), are building it (with Ryan doing most of the construction), using wood from trees that have been thinned from forests in our watershed. The roof and the siding should all be put on the last week of January. The last shot here should really be the first, as it was taken before the roofbeams were put on.
