Framing continues

We are grateful for daily progress on our house. Coming home from work and going the short distance down the street to see what happened that day is especially gratifying as it’s been almost ten months since the beginning of our home-building journey. This sentiment also comes with the knowledge that, along the way, there will be periods of zero activity for seemingly no apparent reason. Right now, though, we’re enjoying the ride.

Today, the framers worked on the front porch area:

This is the garage. The diagonal 2 x 4s are braces that ensure the walls are plumb, which means that doors will stay put in any position.

Nestled in the space between John’s workshop and the garage is a covered outdoor area with a fireplace.

This is a view to the east toward the garage. Good to see that more lumber has been delivered!
