The framing crew arrived about 6:00 a.m. this morning and worked until 2:30 p.m. this afternoon. It was blazing hot. I mean life-threatening hot. Temps in upper 90's with the heat index at 108 degrees!
They framed the outside walls and braced them in place with temporary braces. Tomorrow they will work on the interior walls, then tie it all together with more rigid bracing and bolts.
A lot was accomplished in eight hours. With the wall up it is beginning to take a 3-dimensional shape which gives me a better sense of scale and feel for each room.
