Third Floor Framing!

This weekend was the coldest yet! Saturday we didn't get anything done on site, but did have a wonderful lunch at Old Dominion Brew Pub with Kim & Paul and Justin & Holly (not forgetting Emmy!).

Sunday was a bit warmer at 14 degrees, and I got out to the site around 9 with my Mom. Just as we were starting work on framing the third floor, Noah showed up! Perfect!

During the morning, we put up one rectangular wall, facing the living room. I even framed out a window! That wall didn't go entirely without mishap though. First off, I managed to nail our wall to the floor while constructing it. We had to pry up the thing with the crow bar. Then, as we were raising the wall, Noah said, "Isn't there supposed to be a door here?" Hmm.

We took it back down and framed out the door to our bedroom.

We adjourned to my parents' house for lunch and ate home-made chili and grilled cheese sandwiches - just the thing to warm you up on a cold day.

You can see the snow on our newly installed septic tanks here:

Noah helped us the entire day and we got up two more wall sections, making up the picture you see above. Next weekend we'll work on the difficult sections, where all the studs are different lengths where they meet the roof.

Wow! It looks great! You guys have come a long way. It's good to see Lucas, and his grandparents, updated on the website. Congratualtions! Aileen
