The day began by getting all the equipment and tools necessary for the job to the site. Starting with
a slab of cement, poured weeks earlier, this would become a structure by the end of the day. The
workers are all in these pictures and a list of those are at the bottom. Give them a pat on the back.
Walls for the garage were constructed, placed in their respective positions and boarding up of the
outside walls began. In addiction a trench was dug for power to be run to the garage. By lunch time
them trusses were up.
At lunch time Motely, Josh's dog greeted everyone coming into the garage for lunch. Lunch was
provided by Jan Oldham with the help of her husband Darrel and another friend. Work continued
after lunch with siding and roofing completed around 4 PM.
While finishing up on the garage TV Fox News 17 showed up to interview Josh, Chet Teater and
Aron Bravata.
