This house is going to be huuuuuuuuge compared to what we’re used to.
My favorite activities when building are discovering the view of a framed window and seeing how the house fits in the land.
Blocking is like weeding, there’s always more of it.
This helpless woodpecker fledgling & his mom have been visiting the bird feeder. He always has a feather sticking out awkwardly and doesn’t move around so well. He bumped into our window and couldn’t figure out how to eat from the feeder while his face was literally stuck in the feed. He’s the goofy little woodpecker, his mom does all the work.
I had this guy hover in front of my window many times one day, I thought he was trying to come inside but Rich pointed out he probably saw his reflection and was trying to pick a fight with it. Come to think of it, I had seen it chase another finch earlier.
Bringing the bird feeder this close to the big window has been nothing short of amazing, we call it “watching the big TV” and Robin’s been very much into it.

Don’t miss the hummingbird
The platform for the stairs joins the vertical beam holding the subfloor. Through the magic of computer models, everything lines up perfectly. I never need to make calculations as I build, I cut where the 3D model tells me and I check to make sure I’m true to it. This is particularly useful for angles, I’ve impressed seasoned carpenters by laying all the pieces of a wall full of angles trusting they’ll all fit together in the end.
