Framing: Day 12

The weather was lovely today with a high just in the mid '80s . . . a great day for the framing crew to work, work, work!  It was hard to take good photos of their accomplishments, however, because they concentrated on creating the roof over the new master suite.  The shape of the garage/bedroom portion of the addition is taking shape, and will closely replicate the foursquare hip roof design of the original 1920 house.
The view of the new second story roof from the north, looking back at the house.  French doors will fill that big opening upstairs, and lead out to a deck over the northernmost (Audi) stall of the garage.
The coved ceiling in our bedroom is now encased by the roof rafters. Sure does take a lot of wood and nails to make a house!
Once again today, I got a picture of Scott standing on the second floor landing.  The roof sheathing will probably be completely installed by the end of Friday.
Meanwhile, in the south yard, another load of supplies arrived.  The beadboard in the foreground will be used for the soffit under the roof overhang.
The big chore of the evening was polycoating the wood decking for the great room ceiling.  We were really lucky that Carl shared a few hours helping!  The task was complete by about 9:45 - so about 70 boards are ready for installation.  We are still expecting another stack to arrive for staining sometime soon!
Stay Tuned for Our Next Adventure!
