Who’s that watching Barbara Butler and the crew install their latest custom structure, Coral Gables Castle? Frogs, wild peacocks and other critters make this Florida backyard their home. A sudden warm rain is no big deal for them, but for the humans with a job to do, it’s another story.
Constant vigilance and a good weather app are key to working through the weather. Hats, ponchos and tarps protect the people, although some of the tools are less tolerant of water. But it takes a lot more than a rainy day to stop this dedicated team!
To keep the power tools dry, Marco relocates to the garage during the worst of the downpour.
Armed with a tarp and a good attitude, David hand-lashes the rope railing around one of the tree decks amid the raindrops. Working inside the already roofed part of the playhouse is one way to stay dry. Marcos takes shelter and installs a drop-leaf table.During a break in the showers, Allen applies stain with a tent at the ready in case the rain picks up again. David’s smile is still sunny even when the skies are not…
You’ve got to be nimble to work around this kind of weather without getting off-schedule. With a dedicated crew and a couple of lucky sunny days, Coral Gables Castle is completed in the nick of time.
