Oh, so THAT’s what you’re building…
It took Rockstar, doughnuts and patience, but the crew made a surprising amount of progress this week despite the rain. The footings and walls are poured for the garage/barn, the wayward utility pole is back in place and with a significant portion of the first floor exterior framed, the site is starting to look like something other than a clay strip mining operation.
P.S. Deb was in Starbucks this week and someone in line said “Aren’t you the house blog lady?”
Yes. Yes, she is.

Setting the 1st floor bedroom wall. (And the framer worried about his old man insurance…)

People who know what they’re doing. We’re using Zip sheathing. The guy on the left is air sealing the joints with a special tape.
