Five adults, four kids, a generator, an air compressor, and a nail gun made extremely short work of the rest of the outhouse siding!

Ulrich and Olivia, since the last work party on Saturday, got the roofs on, and put on the back walls of the two outhouses (using the OSB Wil donated), along with building the seats for both. Yesterday they, Valonia, Mikhail, and Freydis got the rest of the siding up on the one outhouse and all of it up on the other in record time!

Now all that remains to be done on them is to put on the doors and cut the holes, and Ulrich says he doesn't need extra help for that. The doors will be more OSB with some of the log off-cuts attached to help it match.

He also says he will be able to finish up the well; it's just a matter of running the pipe into it and hooking things up, and shouldn't require another work party.

No more work parties! Work party work is done! Woo! Thanks, everyone!

We also discussed plans for the event, and got some details with merchanting tables and such sorted out. Valonia showed us her really beautiful SCA signs she made to mark the route from the highway; and Freydis showed the tokens she's making, and ran the event handout past everyone. Only a couple of small edits to make there.

The kids mostly did their own thing, but did help gather up some of the leftover scrap and run it out to the fire pit for kindling.

Remember, while the site officially opens next Friday, if you helped out you get early access and can come out for Thursday! Plus, actually, you can come out earlier than that if you want to.

See you next weekend!
