It takes a while to even have gaps when starting your life over from scratch. I have two flower beds and a vegetable garden that are"full". The garden is the gap.
The unique approach of building the roof on the ground required that some gaps were left in the cabin. The easy to reach ones are being closed in first.
I managed to fill in two pieces on the difficult side of the cabin. There will be some rented scaffolding in the near future.
The front door is being secured, level and plumb. Thirty two sixteen foot long 2x6 tongue and groove boards were placed on top of my truck and driven up the mountain. These have already been cut to size for the floor of the loft and a small storage loft above the front door.
About half of the metal straps that tie the roof and walls together were tacked on until I ran out of that particular kind of nail.
The edge of the tropical storm, Miss Fay that has been drowning my relations in Florida is getting closer. The drought has actually been timed perfectly for the raising of the roof, but we have had enough of not enough rain. I hope Miss Fay comes our way. Things are beginning to look scary dry. If I haven't quite filled in all the gaps, tough. We need some rain.
