Framing! This is good :-)

So the framers started laying sill plates on Thursday, busted their ass! Continued Friday and were willing to come work Saturday morning to get enough sheeting on that I could lay bottom plates for interior walls over the weekend….HUGE Kudos to the framing crew with Greylight Construction in Midway for going the extra mile and working on Saturday!!! This allows me and my son Max to get the interior walls laid out and bottom plates on for radiant heat tubing and a concrete pour on Thursday.

While they were doing the floor we finished up the second level of gabion retaining walls. All done!

Just as we snapped about half the chalk lines on the floor for the walls the storm clouds came over, rained enough to wash away the chalk lines, and gave us the opportunity to do them again. After the rain, and we waited for it to dry, we finished up the chalk lines, ran to the local Ace Hardware and grabbed some lacquer to spray over the chalk lines. Started spraying and it started raining…… Hopefully they are there in the morning for us to nail down the plates.

It hasn't really rained for 2 months, but once we get some floor sheeting in, it rains...go figure.

Floor joists. 3-1/2" I-joists to hold 3" of standard concrete flooring.

Second level of gabion retaining walls finished. Glad we had a skid steer to do this.

I got some good help from my son Max today filling gabions and working on the floor layout. He'll be cutting floor plates tomorrow.
