Roof beams and interior framing

The roof package of lumber arrived, but not without some drama. The truck delivering the beams, the longest one a 52 foot Glulam beam, somehow slid off the road, dumped a load of 16′ long 2×4’s and the 5/8″ roof sheathing onto the road, and messed up his truck a bit on a tree. Luckily the GLB’s that are exposed in the house were not messed up.

The framers installed the beams with a crane, and got part of the roof joists up. We also started framing the basement interior walls. L (the wife) and I framed about half the basement today, and will finish up tomorrow. We are doing all the interior, non bearing wall framing ourselves.

We also got the stone for the chimney stack delivered.
