Brigade 2017: We got ‘er done!

Posted by Patty Osborne

FRIDAY: In spite of being without power for a few hours, we still managed to get the large shed totally welded up and painted, and put chimneys on two of the kilns. If we can get some consistent power, we have a shot at finishing on time.

SATURDAY: We finished the big kiln shed and completed welding the frame on the small one. Alvaro, Carlos and Douglas (the young ones) put in twelve hours and the rest of us put in ten. When we got back to the hotel we had a special treat—ibuprofen all around.

SUNDAY: We got ‘er done! Painted and got the roof on the second kiln shed, put a chimney on the third kiln, and built a little retaining wall to keep the water out. Tired, sore, and happy!
