Blocking is very time consuming; so is having to deal with uneven boards. Thanks to my boss Mark for taking his own time off to work 11 hours straight thus saving me time and mistakes made.
Once again I spent hours measuring & leveling; the laser level has proven itself to be invaluable.
To lift the beams up I used a technique I don’t know the name of but that I discovered watching this: link. This is no Stonehege but 3 2x8x16 with plywood sandwiched between is more than I can lift, this technique worked really well.
Leveling, mesuring, hammering for 9 hours. The 2 heaviest parts of the house, piers & beams are up a month ahead of schedule.
