After returning from our blitz trip to McCarthy, Victory, and Palmer, the guys got busy right away. With walls up and more sunshine in the forecast it’s time to get the roof on. This is the job that Dave has been really pushing for. With a roof on, they will not have to worry about protecting the walls and deck from rain.
To my eye just having the trusses up makes the skeleton look complete. But, little do I know, there is BRACING to add. It’s little things like that that keep a house together. (There’s a metaphor for life.)
Dave tells me that the framing is the fast part of building and from now on things will move along much more slowly. What that means for you the readers is that the photos are going to be detail stuff. “Oh look! Another electrical box!” “How about that; more black pipe stuff in the walls.” “Yep, I see more bracing.” It also probably means that I’ll insert other events that are occurring here, like the garden or trips or cooking or sewing; whatever takes my fancy.
