Here are three shots of the string lines we used. One looks a little off due to the angle of the camera. The wall was really pretty straight so it was braced.

I am now at weekend number 6, time spent is generally 26 hours man hours a weekend so when you multiple that out we have put in around 156 man hours to this point. We only work weekends and there are a couple of trips to the lumber store in the total. I do try to buy stuff during the week and bring it up on weekends if the weather allows. We guesstimated around 400 to 500 man hours. What ever the total ends up being, if I build a second one, it will take 100 hours less. While we are not inventing the wheel here, we definitely don't have a road map and just forge along until one of us calls stop and then we evaluate whether we are making the right decisions. My type of project, I am enjoying the journey!
