Framing Day 26 - and we're done :)

Yep, framing is finally complete! It took five weeks exactly. Pretty cool. Hopefully roofing will start next week - there was a delay in getting the tiles and with the long weekend coming up...

Here are the last of the framing pics, taken this morning just after 7am. When we dropped by the site yesterday, the guys were still there and we didn't get back over in the evening. Hence my early morning visit.

Framing - Day 25...

Well, this should be my second to last day blogging about framing. Hopefully I'll be blogging about roofing by the end of the week! I met the flooring guy today so he could take measurements and discussed the staircase handrails with our builder :)

And there we go - final framing photos tomorrow! Then the updates likely won't be so frequent as things won't be changing so obviously - roofing, electrical work, insulation etc.

Framing - Day 24...

The roof is now done! Well, the sheathing part, anyway except for the little one over the eating nook which should be done Monday. And the last few inside walls will go up Monday and Tuesday. We're hoping the actual roofing will start some time next week and then the electrical work. Yay!!!
