Topping out

I didn't hold out any hope of finishing the walling before I leave for the UK - shame as I wanted to start the roofing as soon as I return. Anyhow I got up at 6.30 and made a start. I just kept going and by 2.00 I realised that I might just do it! It was very hot and humid and I moved about 2-3 tonnes or more of stone and concrete up the ladder. I was a bit worried loading out the big oak lintol with tonnes of rock - but I needn't have worried, there's no noticeable deflection at all. By 7.00 I'd topped out! Still some pointing to do but it'll only take a day or so. Elderflower Champagne to celebrate.
