Thanks for asking. The bullwork on my pergola is up but have not cut or installed the beams yet.
I'm in northern IL and the rain has been pretty steady since Sunday afternoon. I want to paint the joists before I attach the beams so until it dries out... I did however, stand all of my 2 x 6 beams on end and clamp them together for notching.
Hubby came home from work and saw them in garage and made me promise not to attempt it myself. What a chauvinist! So, soon as I cut the ends off at an angle and get them notched, I can't paint those either. Maybe tomorrow (Good Friday) hubby has the day off. We would like to get it up this weekend since ourhome is on the market and we have a showing on Sat. I should have done this project when I wanted to, 15 years ago!
Will keep you posted. Betsy
