Week of February 13, 2006

The exterior walls of the second floor were all finished and the front and back porch beams were built, stood up and squared. A new system of connecting the bottom of the porch posts to the concrete was tried and it seems to work pretty well. We are also using regular dimensional framing lumber with an OSB sandwich for the posts instead of treated 4 x 4's. With the help from the Tuesday and Thursdy groups, we are making lots of progress and we are moving very fast for such a late start in the winter.

Our Home B.A.S.E. Government techer, Mr. Vincent was on site with us on Friday and helped us build the exterior walls.
