Construction update #11

The big news this week is that we have lumber! Quite a bit of wood was delivered Monday morning, and Gene and Sam were champing at the bit to get their hands on it.
As you can see, they had a nice start at the end of the day Monday despite a later than expected lumber delivery and our first recordable injury of the project. Gene's hand got in the way of a ricocheting nail from the nail gun and his knuckle suffered a direct hit. Even though he's got a high pain threshold and strong pain killers, he took the day off Tuesday to let his hand recover.

At the end of the day Monday, this was the view from the roof.

On Wednesday the guys were back to work completing a couple more walls, and framing in the windows completely.

The view from the west.

This is the bundle of i-beams that will rest on top of the walls. They're 16 inches deep and 28 feet long. Pretty massive. Wrastling those things could be a bit of work.

Finally, here's the view from the roof of the house at the end of the day on Wednesday.
