I haven't talked much about our lives outside the project so far, but here goes... We have quit our jobs with the school system so that we may spend part of a year in my wife's home city of Salto, Uruguay in the bosom of her family. The kids will develop those important bonds with their grandparents, finally learn the language (we should have taught them), and get to know the other half of their cultural roots.
In the mean time, being unemployed has been the sweetest bliss you can imagine. Euphoria, rapture, supreme elyssium!
There are some loose ends to tie up, though. For example, storing this boat out of the elements.
Sure, I could just put the boat in the workshop, but then I wouldn't have a workshop anymore. I just had my dad to saw up some 2x6's and I cut the metal roof back a bit and scabbed them on to the existing rafters.
The boat itself made a really nice scaffolding to stand on while I set the rafters and nailed on the purlin boards.
Camila, of course, had to make her own building beside my building.
