The good, the bad, and the ugly

Worked for 4 hours today in sweltering awful heat. C was able to start putting up the walls to the pantry. I filled 7 tires on the living room section of the wall. As we were walking away to get into the car C noticed a creaking noise. After 5 minutes of trying to move tires the entire wall fell. It was always a worry of mine that it would fall again. The wall was separate from everything else and wasn’t shaped well. From here we have made the decision that the tires are done. We are going to level out what is left on that side, concrete the top to level it, and frame up an outer wall. The rest of the house should go a lot faster now. I am nervous that we won’t have be able to maintain the temperature as well with fewer tires, but all in all I think this is the best decision for us. Anyone want to come help put up framing?
