Concrete and some vertical wood

27 August 2009 in Meriden

Tuesday there were finally all the concrete piers in place and the back yard looked like a mini lumber yard.  Wednesday the framers showed up and in a day the floor was framed and by the end of Thursday there were perimeter walls.  All it took was two days, six good framers, me standing around in the way answering questions, and about 12,000 nails.  It is great to see the space and I am happy with the layout and size of the rooms.  Monday the movers are coming to lower the house to make contact with the first floor frame so I should have the beams in place and sheathing on by the end of Friday.  Wish me luck.  And stop the rain.  What is it about me taking a roof off or starting to frame that can break any drought.  The last two nights we have had thunderstorms.  Couldn’t it have waited just one more week?
