#63 – September 19, 2018 – More Framing!

Dear Friends,

This week, volunteers continue to frame up the Maintenance Shed on Ishwar’s project in Bruce, Wisconsin.
Workers were busy installing the heavy beam that spans the building and then fastening in the long, wooden rafters that will support the roof.
The mighty sevadars take a break after raising this 900-pound beam.
Here, the team is framing the roof of the garage bays with 2×10 inch planks.
A sevadar, enjoying his service!
The rafters over the garage bays have been completed.
And now work has begun on the rafters over the loft.
At the end of the day, and more rafters to install tomorrow.
Of course, framing is only one of many sevadar activities happening on the property these days.
Picking apples to make apple juice for the workers.
Planting Hostas, a lovely shade-tolerant foliage plant.
Preparing holes for apple trees that will be planted in the spring.
And, after each day of work, the sevadars gather to share a meal that is prepared with love and devotion … and fresh garden vegetables.
With warmest regards,
Paul Bauer
Chair of ISHA Building & Fund-Raising Committee
