Fast Framing

Happy Friday, Everyone!

It has been a whirlwind since we last spoke.  I had to go out of town for work Saturday through Tuesday morning, so Aaron was keeping me updated on the framing progress. Here are some photos and video he took of last weekend’s progress plus some current photos (or something close).

They did a little demo:

They put up a wall:

Before I knew it, they had framed all of the walls:

[you’re looking at our kitchen…]

Then the guys started working on the roof framing (which they are still doing in between rain storms):

Here’s a view from the side– where they also poured our car pad. The driveway was supposed to be poured today, but the rain is making that questionable.

“How does it feel?”  You ask?  Great!

At the same time, the craziness of our schedules+inspections+weather+lack of sleep feels a lot like this:

I’m the one on the right of the photo, in case you couldn’t tell.  Hah!  😉

Some interesting news to share:

We had always suspected that the house was older than 1957.  Jeff and Tommy seem to think that it was built in the 20’s or 30’s (based on the use of longleaf pine and a certain type of nail) and moved to the lot in 1957.  Very interesting… Another mystery!

On that note, I’ll bid you adieu and wish you a happy weekend!
