Adding Braces and Big Bolts.


I have started adding the bracing across and between the bents.
It is amazing how strong these bents are after the braces are added as compared to before.
I have also started adding carriage bolts to hold everything together.

As you can see, I have a long ways to go on the bracing.
You can also see why I was in a hurry to get the pilings in the ground.

A few storms have blown through, but so far, the ground is not yet frozen.
That will change very soon.

Now let's have a quick look at last year's project.
