I didn't get a chance to post yesterday, which was day 42.
Today, with all of the rain, Mark took the day off from the site in order to visit his doctor, who removed a tiny metal shard from his eye. Just a minor irritation; thankfully, no permanent damage done.
Yesterday (day 42), Mark finished cutting and placing all the straps. Some of them still need to be screwed down, so Brock is going to try to work on that over the weekend.
