Green walls

So I ended Friday with the sheathing on the house and the trusses and beams set.  Almost everything ready for the lowering of the old house onto the new frame and then joining them together with a magical spell.  Or nails and wood.  Two of my kids came with me on Saturday to help clean up while I checked everything and made one temporary post to help put the last piece of steel in after the house is down.  They made a pretty big dent in the trash but it still looks like three days of frantic framing with no dumpster on site to catch the waste.

Monday morning should bring the last big spectacle for this house.  After the lowering and removal of the lifting beams and crib stacks, it will just look like another remodel.  Except that the upstairs is painted and finished looking from the outside but maybe passers-by will just think I’m an eccentric, out of order builder.
