All top girts are up

Some busy-doing-other-stuff type things ate into our construction time, but we still managed to get all the top girts installed. Also spread about half of the remaining crush and run, plus I put in some additional blocking here and there that's not obvious in the photo.

The next "biggie" is getting thirty-eight (yes, 38) 2x10x20' floor joists up onto those top girts. Those rascals are not light and even though we consider ourselves in good condition for late fiftyish/early sixtyish type folk, Mrs GunTrash and I are trying to figure out the least strenuous and safest way to get it done. I'm thinking some sort of gantry and pulley affair off of one of the posts.. I think it'll work.. if it does, I'll be sure to take some pics of it.
