Well, the house on top is starting to take shape. The carpenters got a few days of fine weather this week and they have all but completed the high level framing.
These guys are so good with their electric saws and nail guns. One fellow cuts the studs and noggins while the others nail’em together, to form the wall frames. They attach the bracing straps, stand the frames up, nail’em down, square ’em up and set them plumb. It happens so quick.
That’s where they finished up on this Friday afternoon. The ceiling joists for the flat ceiling are all in place and we are ready for the roof.
In the picture above, the framing for the window has been left out so that the boys can get access via the ladder.
In the picture above, we see the kitchen area with the dropped ceiling. The laundry and toilet are behind it.
Seen below is the view from the living room window of the upper floor.
More soon, as we wait for the high level scaffolding to be erected to allow the roof works to commence.
