Before removing the header which created the offending bonker, Scott constructed a temporary support.
Scott used the Sawzall to cut through the nails holding the framing together.
Carl helped Scott wriggle the header free - it took a little extra cutting to get it loose.
The view from above...Scott checks the squareness of the remaining framing by leaning over into the staircase.
Fashion note: Scott does not have a crew cut but his barber used to be in the Air Force - so you can do the math. ;)
On Sunday, Scott finished framing the new "floor" of the closet. The door will still be full-height but the lower portion of the closet will be closed-in with drywall. Stay tuned for details later this week!
The new floor of the closet will be covered with the original Douglas fir flooring. Scott set the sub-floor in place late Sunday afternoon.
