Of course I’m missing lumber for the last step
Fixing the 22.5° problem, one trial at a time.
Unfortunately I forgot to snap a pic of the resulting trusses, tomorrow.
Sun-burnt, bug bitten, wind eroded, eye wood dusted and barely any progress. I’m taking a break tomorrow.
It’s an incredible feeling to see the outline of the house in the land.
First 2nd floor wall & Nicole is making sure we have a little garden this year
Mark & Herschel helping (thank you)
Today saw an amazing push with help from Peter, Matt, Rich & Kevin. This was quite a crew and 3 daunting tasks were taken care of fast & well. Nicole & I are ever so grateful for the help we received today; it was a lot of work, a lot of support and it puts us right in front of being able to raise the frame of the second floor. There is nothing like seeing walls go up to strengthen building will.
There’s a party on the 2nd floor
12h day with Mark & Jared helping get all 4 walls up!
Raising a wall
I fell off a ladder twice, thankfully not from much height. We clamped to no end to keep the wood straight.
2 done, 2 to go.
20:30, all 4 walls are up!
I especially liked looking at the views through the windows’ rough openings
The next day, somewhat protected from the impending storm with help from Peter.
I also got a kick out of seeing the design I have been immersed in for months come to life. I’ll try to take better comparison shots.
