Framing started

Framing started today…3 days after it was supposed to. I do not understand how these things go so off schedule. Despite this delay, I am excited to see the house begin to look more like a house than just some concrete int he ground!

The crew worked hard to get the sill plates and ledgers up, despite some issues caused by the foundation crew. These things can happen and you need to find ways to work around them, but it would sure be nice if more attention was paid to details that affect other aspects of the build.

Pictures below, I’m too tired to go on and on.

When the anchor bolts are set too low to put the bolt on above the sill plate, we'll be drilling and adding epoxy.
