It is quite the process. We have to load the pieces of ½” OSB onto the skidsteer basket 6 at a time.
Barb has her own special way of carrying the sheets
Sheet after sheet put into place in a staggered formation for maximum strength. The roof will have about 100 sheets of 4’x8’ OSB when all is said and done. Add the 110 sheets of 7/16” OSB on the sidewalls and that is a lot of sheets of OSB we had to lug into place!

Speaking of the garage, Kevin sent me detailed instructions on how to install the overlook above the garage gable to dress up the front of the building a little bit. Being such a large building with two huge overhead doors anything will help. But between the overlook, wood timbers around the overhead doors and the covered porch on the side we think it will look pretty good when all is said and done.

But those are problems for another time, things to ponder on now and worry about later......
For fun this week we went to a Hunting Retriever Club (HRC) event put on by the Mount Rushmore HRC. A friend of ours from Minnesota drove out with his family so their dogs could compete in the event. We usually only see Chad once a year up at Pasha Lake where he likes to hang out during bear season and we had never met his wife Jennifer and daughters Mackenzie and Jessika.
The hunt trials score the dog and the handler as a team while retrieving downed ducks. The handler and the dog are stationed next to each other and a dead duck is launched out of a hidden huge slingshot while the "hunter" shoots blanks simulating a real hunting situation.
The dog is then released to retrieve the bird. The dog is scored on how well it listens and retrieves and the handler is scored on how much direction they have to give the dog. Throughout the day the dogs get 4 retrieves, two on water and two on land.

Both dogs did great and successfully completed each of their retrieves, Eva even graduated to the next level! It was a very interesting event. Now Barb is looking into joining with Dakota! I think I just lost my hunting dog......
After the event they came over to our place for burgers and beers (for the adults). It was great seeing with Chad and meeting the rest of the family, hope to see them later this year up in Ontario!
