Easy morning assembling the first door for the west side. Must have wrenched my back with the last pour - every little twist and turn was rather painful. Got the north door in place - tacked the hinges and ended up with 1/16" clearance at the top and 1/8" at the bottom. Think I will take the day off tomorrow.

All of a sudden the rain fell hard and I lost power. Almost a half inch of rain from 6 - 7 PM. Water has a way of getting into everything especially when you aren't used to it.
