Piles. The good kind.

This is how the pile began. The first few roof members.

Then the piles steadily grew. This is the roof.


And for each member, there are tons of nails. Here, at our nail removal station, Brandon is removing nails with a nail gun remover. Towards the end, we had three people at three nail removal stations.

This is the roof, and the second floor.

Here is the south wing of the piles; once we hit the first floor the piles began growing very quickly and spreading. At times, the walkways between them were canyons.

The mighty nail. We had to buy a magnetic nail collector, and are hoping to do something creative with all the nails we collected.
