    Go slow. Getting hurt when your tired and trying to just get one more thing done is not a good thing. Glad your saw you bought is working well for you. A quality saw is worth every penny used or new.

    Another update:
    I put on the majority of the plywood sheeting Saturday. I had plans to seal and stain it on Sunday but after taking the family out for food Saturday night I was sick with food poisoning Sunday and Monday......
    Well it rained a lot Monday and some of the plywood warped a little so I spent this morning straightening what was already on. I did get all the other plywood on, sealed, and stained by the days end.
    I started to frame up the trusses as well but need a few more 2x4s to finish.
    This has been a crazy amount of work! I am starting to go insane I think... OCD won't let me just throw it together so I'm in it for the long haul now.
    Here's some pictures
    Ps: the tarps were my quick solution to drying it in before more rain and snow chances this weekend.

    Really busy today, gotta take advantage of those days off work.
    As for the saw it seems to like the colder weather, it's running and starting better now than it ever has. I think I may need another cedar for the bridge so I will be ripping with it again soon.
