Hand work

Power tools are cool, but sometimes you just need to use tools from the days before electricity. Lou got out one of his Japanese pull saws to cut a fancy joint for the roof framing.

A compound something-or-other for where a horizontal member meets an arched truss 

Now it's on to framing the new end of the trailer. The original door will be reused. New, this time around, will be a sliding pocket screen door. No more bothersome flapping, magnetic, roll-up screen. The bugs will be so disappointed.
