Zachary vs the trees~
Slated for removal or trimming per the architectural designs, then spared for the sake of not changing the landscape too dramatically, these trees simply had to be topped to make way for the carport roof. With a good friend and fellow acolyte, Zachary spent a few hours on Saturday doing battle with the branches.
Zachary's core team of skilled, knowledgeable adult workers took a well-earned day off to go sailing and spend time with their families, offering to come back on Sunday for another session of constructing the carport. In their absence the planned Saturday work party was rescheduled for after Mass on Sunday, and Saturday became a supply gathering, tree trimming, plan studying kind of day.
Zachary carefully studies the plans before placing a large lumber order.
