So very cold. Progress at a stand still.
South facade! Windows arrive Nov. 29. Will we be ready?
All that wood waiting to be put to use!

It's -17 C right now, with nights getting a bit colder. Our framer couldn't do much work as his generator couldn't work in the -20 cold last week. So, work is at a standstill. *Sigh* Matt set up a propane heater in the basement, in an effort to keep the slab a little warmer than -20 and also to protect the water line. I'm not sure it's doing much good. I needed to change the tank this morning, as no heat was coming out of the thing. We have a VERY long extention cord that extends all the way to our neighbours' outside plug in. It powers the blower on the heater. I will have to pay great penance for using all that carbon-soaked fuel! And I have to head out tonight to see if there needs to be another tank change. Here is hoping that it warms up next week!
