Building walls

The corner here is the living room fireplace wall and the front windows. I had no idea how heavy the wall was going to be, but Tom, Charlie, and I got it up. It was heavy but do-able. I was shaking from the effort of trying to hold it up and in place, thinking it might topple over the edge of the front wall onto the ground or fall back on us and squash us to death. Of course the guys helped me realize that it would stand on its own weight. But it still took me a while to stop shaking after it was nailed down and braced.
