Week 34 – Framing for Windows

I skipped the week 33 post since it was just additional wooden framing that wasn’t so drastic that you could really tell in a picture.

This week, however, is a different story as the steel has been added in the framing in prep for the windows.

Here is a shot from the drive looking at the front of the house.


This is a shot from the kitchen looking out.


Mason blocks are in the living area now. I’m pretty sure these are for the fireplace box.


This is a shot of the garage. You can see the framing on top where the garage deck planters will go.


The framing on the second floor also looks complete and if I can figure out a way to get up there without killing myself, I’ll try and get some pictures.

Week 32 – Framing Continues

The framing continues as they continue to fill out the frame of the house. You can really get a sense what an amazing view the second floor bedroom will get of the live oak canopies.


Here is a shot of the back of the house where the second story master and bathroom will be overlooking the roof top deck.


Current schedule has another week or two of framing if the weather cooperates.

Week 31 – Second Floor Framing

I essentially took a week off from posting as the rainy weather minimized the noticeable progress. The rain ended early this week and the framing crew were able to make good progress on the second floor.

You can start to see the roof outlines of the second floor as seen from the drive.


From the upper terrace, almost all the decking is complete on what will be the deck over the garage looking into the upstairs master suite.


You can really get a sense of the entire structure now that most of the second floor is framed out.


Here is a shot from the other side of the upper terrace.


If the weather continues to cooperate, all the framing should be complete in the next two to three weeks.
