Day Seven Construction

We passed the framing inspection....No issues whatsoever.  The inspector recommended hurricane straps for the rafters, that was the only item.

We added the straps per his recommendation, even though they are not code.

Roof installation began today.  The roof is metal...

Day Six Construction

Rafter installation continues, and is finished!  Framing inspection occurs next...We can go no further until the inspection is complete.

Now, if you had no idea what this was earlier, there's no confusion now...

Day Two Construction

Not much to add from the second day of construction.  Framing of the north wall was completed.  Until the tree is trimmed out of the way, construction is in a holding pattern.  Tree trimming will take place today.

First Day of Construction

The first day of building construction took place today; definite progress was made!

First, the lumber truck stopped by for its first visit of the day.















Then, the building began.














Framing went quickly - first on the west side as shown above.

The lumber truck stopped by again.














First day - progress!
