In software development, we call the prevention of defects earlier in the process “shift left testing.” The idea is that if you can find a bug earlier in the development process, it is less expensive to fix it.
Tonight I was just about ready to go and upload my roundhouse side walls to the Cricut and produce some parts. I was just going to fix up the area under the ice house (a small shed that will appear on the eastern wall), when I thought I would go and check Del Rosamond’s notes to see if he had anything about the size of the shed.
Sadly, there were no dimensions anywhere, but that’s when I noticed that his sketch shows no windows on the side of the roundhouse. No photos of the sides of the roundhouse have appeared yet, and so, the sketch is all we have.
I suppose it is better to have found the error now before expending even more energy on cutting out the parts and putting them together. Still, it is rather deflating to have spent time drawing windows and framing them up. I guess I learned how to use Inkscape, and so, it wasn’t completely wasted effort.
