Framing- Part 1

Framing started this week for the most part.  After a small misunderstanding with the place we were getting our lumber, it was delivered the day before New Year’s Eve. The power pole was also delivered by the electric company.  It was supposed to be installed before the new year…that did not happen.

The guy that is in charge of framing came out and chalked the walls and his crew started on New Years Eve.

And then it rained.  And rained some more.

So, I sat impatiently in our super tiny apartment and designed all of the cabinets for our house.

The sun finally came out and Monday, the guys were back at work framing.

The girls had a day off from school so they spent most of the afternoon out there.  Sydney enjoyed taking panoramics of the guys working.  The girls were fascinated with them building a wall, and then standing it up and bolting it down.

Tuesday had more rain, but it was nice and sunny Wednesday so they guys finished up all of the walls.

More rain on Thursday, but by the end of the day on Friday, the ceiling construction was mostly complete.

On a side note…this water had been sitting in this spot for over a month.  It needed a place to go so I dug out a trench leading to the ditch so it would finally drain!

By the end of the day Saturday, they had the side porch ceiling finished and the dormer support finished.

This wraps up the first week of framing.  Still no electricity.
