I'll be there as well camping. 

I should be able to complete the front and back walls of the kitchen over July 4th weekend. 

I also need to complete the attaching of the upper plates on the outside. inside is done.

Dave and I need to cut about 20 more 2 X 6 X 10 feet for the front wall. I'm running out of material!

We are ready to put up trusses.

I need to bring over our available staging and set it up.

I think i need four 2X6X16 for the hips - I'll check later today.

In addition to the trusses, I am ready to install the plywood on the kitchen. So a crew of 3 can work on that if we have enough for the trusses.
