I try to make sure when I ask for help I let folks know that its appreciated by showing the work.
I have six of the braces complete but had to stop since she showed up from college for a few days to help us with the county fair and 4H. So I will have about two weeks starting tomorrow to finish. I'm in Vail so yup right next door

To try to keep up with the progress here is where I am right now, I need to finish the X brace for the top and the cross members for the ends. Then I just need to find a way to hang the ropes
