Week 29 – Second Floor Decking

Subtle progress has been made since last week and the first floor framing was filled out and the second floor decking was started.

Decking has been added to the second floor area in prep for framing.


Here is a shot from the upper terrace that more clearly shows the decking.


Here is the view that shows the entire footprint.


Next week should be more of the same as they complete the decking over the garage and start the framing on the second story. We do have rain in the forecast mid-week so there might be some rain delays.

Week 28 – Framing and Trusses

The framing of the first floor continues along with the second floor truss installation.

As you come up the drive, you can see the truss installation.

Here is a shot from the upper terrace looking down. You can really get a sense of the overall structure of the house now.


There are also some samples of the concrete treatment in an area that will be covered with hardwood.


After so many weeks of rain delays in the spring through early summer, it has been really nice to see noticeable progress each week.

Week 27 – First Floor Framing

Lots of progress has been made since our last visit on the first floor framing. You can walk around and get a real sense of the rooms.

Here is a view from about half way up the drive. You can now get a sense of how the final form of the house will look from the street.

This is a view from the driveway looking through to where the living room will be.


We are looking forward to see what the next week brings.
