WEEK 14 – After flooding last week, anything less than 8 inches of rain was going to feel like success. So after a soggy Tuesday and Wednesday, a sunny Fourth of July followed by 4 more days of sunshine saw some notable progress being made!
We started with a 4th of July breakfast lift of the 42′ beast on the second floor that sits over the 42′ beast we raised a few weeks ago. Eight people lifting together, and some Panera Bagels get stuff done!
Then onto the front side of the house, where Josh, “The Other Josh,” and Ryan decided to build one more wall just for good measure. And yes…that’s a massive window right in the middle of it. The windows are huge in this house, and we love it!
Throughout the week, the wall between what will be the bonus room in the garage and the upstairs bathroom went up, and the other front wall was mostly framed. Josh and I polished off that project on Saturday afternoon, thus completing the front profile.
This week, we’ll tackle a bunch of smaller projects in advance of the lift we’ll use to put the roof trusses up arriving next week. Some sunshine would be much appreciated!
