David is learning to finesse this unwieldy machine. Ryan and Don roll out the material and staple it down. I prefer it when they all stay on the platform. Don is the mountain goat of this crew...always doing a high wire act. I can’t watch! We’re really enjoying this crew. All of them were students of Scott, who has been helping Zac, our builder, when his own project is slow. Zac and Don, who have known each other since kindergarten, are former students of Scott. Ryan who is 19, as well as Dylan, who sometimes helps out, are current students. Both Don and Ryan are farmers and would prefer to be working in their fields or with the livestock, but it’s too hard for famers these days to make a living so they build houses. Ryan just won a grand prize at the county fair for a cabinet he built. Don, 32, collects and restores old tractors. Occasionally we bring out some cold beer at the end of the day to relax and have a chat. It’s really nice.
