From the Walls to the Windows?

We’re still catching up to a point where we will be able to put a roof on, but it hasn’t come in yet anyway. But we finished framing the peak with our octagon window in it, the small pieces of plywood on the wheel wells (that were incredibly precise cuts to get and very frustrating), wrapping the house, and putting in the windows on the lower level! 132 more words

Walls up

So it’s been a while since I’ve written – nothing happened for a while and then a lot happened at once. Progress hit a slow spot as Jacob pulled a muscle and I was sick, and then we sacrificed a “Saturday workday” for his 2nd degree black belt test. 152 more words

Side project

We weren’t expecting the shed to be delivered for a few more weeks, but I received a call that it could be here much sooner, so Monday I recruited Jeri to help me build the bottom frame and put it together. 104 more words

Visible progress!

Thursday evening, we got some help from Jeremy and Anna and were able to get plywood flooring put up on the loft floor. Even though I was given the wrong kind from Carter Lumber, we had enough left over from the main floor to make it work. 71 more words

Corrections

So working late, we were able to get the loft floor framed, and let me just say- I’m thankful for tall friends! (Standing on tiptoes, I can’t put a screw in the top of the loft frame…but Wyatt can!) We also had it pointed out to us that our window and door frames weren’t supported correctly… so once again… two steps forward, one step back. 33 more words

Double check

Since Jacob started his job Monday, we really only had one evening to work on the house this week. We were also making sure we were complying to legal regulations before proceeding too far. 104 more words
