The rafter delivered in two pieces is being welded together on the ground (bottom center of image).

The rafters on the south side of the Oculus are shorter than the north.

Also, #26 N is going up. 3 away from being halfway done on the north side!

Plus we're now at the 40 percent mark of all rafters installed. Definitely moving along relatively quickly now

If all goes well, I think we can expect the rafter installation to be completed by the end of October. It's obviously safe to say they won't meet the end of August deadline, but if they're going to finish this thing up before the end of the year, I'll be just as happy.
