First Floor Construction

Dec 16, 2007

First floor construction continues with joists and rafters for the second floor, stairs, and wall enclosures.

The second floor looks to be more than sufficiently supported

My laundry room is below the stairs, with the front-loading washer & dryer literally tucked in beneath.

They cut a trap door for the subfloor access in the hall closet, also under the stairs. Little Man is making a silly face as he stands in it. He doesn't like the house. He says it's a Skeleton House. He's quite cross that it hasn't yet been painted.

The south facing walls are sheeted with Thermastrand to reflect the heat from the sun. Little Man decided to tidy up after the construction workers.

The second floor is ready for sheeting

And the rest of the first floor is nearing completion
