Framing: Day 5

The great room addition is taking shape! On Tuesday, the crew added sheathing to the south, west, and north walls, making it much easier for me to understand the room's final size.

The crew has also added two beams inside the existing dining room to serve as headers once the west and north walls are removed.  This has caused small gaps to occur at the base of each wall which in turn makes Scott worry about skyrocketing air conditioning bills.  He is spending his evening adding sheets of rigid insulation to the compromised walls which will keep the heat and humidity outdoors where they belong.  The big beam at the top left will support the new hallway to the master suite.
Our good patio set is Tux's new hangout.  He loves lounging on the table top and, of course, on the cushioned chairs.  At least someone is making use of it!  It's far to warm outdoors for me to do much lounging.
Stay Tuned for Our Next Adventure!
