Not the most interesting title. I got nothing today. Sans pithy statements for a change. Just some initial views of the interior framing on the top floor.
So not fully finished sheeting, and still with braces in the next shots.
The house doesn’t look massively different, but it was a nice day. And I took photos of my framing handiwork. Yes, my handiwork. Not just a handsome joe-job kinda guy anymore.

And a great view of the burn pile. Guess I better hang around when the burn happens. Wouldn’t want to start […]

Northeast corner of the basement. Mechanical room at the back, storage room and bathroom all framed in. Roanne’s studio. Framed it with notched 2×4’s to keep the room as wide as possible. I got to notch these out on the table saw and chop saw. On my way to becoming a craftsman. It was nice […]
