Construction Finally!!!

I spent an hour this morning finishing the foundation, then got straight to cutting out the wall frame.  I put my radial arm saw to work cutting the angles at 12 degrees. 

 I am painting the ends of each piece so I don't confuse the 3 lengths that will be used, since they are only different by a couple of inches.  Red is for the longest "C" struts, blue for the "B" struts, and the shortest "A" pieces will be yellow. 
 I am using 2x8s for the top sill.  The first course of glazing will rest on top.  I have cut a bevel and drip groove to help direct water into my rain collection system.
