Work continues at a relaxed but steady pace. I have been helped recently by Mr. Josh Dibb of Baltimore. He is a musician but enjoys building. He knows the value of a sixteenth of an inch. We put up the rafters and are now beginning to put the roof sheathing in place. We are looking at standing seam panels to match the roof of the ecohouse. Current plans are to move the ecohouse here around March 1, weather and bureaucracy willing. Sam Droege, Rob Roy Mackey and myself, Eric Hempstead, attended a meeting with the Administrator of the Botanic Gardens and the gentleman responsible for crane operations last week. They couldn't have been more helpful so we will have excellent support for the move.
