(2nd) Story Time

— SjG @ 4:59 pm

Today, there was an inspection, followed by rapid framing work on the second story. The tower is beginning to really take form!

This is where I’m starting to realize that none of the architectural drawing really gave me a sense of what the structure would look like in situ, or what the garden will look like. It will be a big change. With any luck, the garden will remain a pleasant place, and the butterflies and birds will continue to frequent it.

More lumber was delivered this morning with a thunderous crash as they dumped it off the truck. The change from yesterday is not as visually impressive, but they’re making good progress.

The crew made a lot of progress today too! The stairs look like they’re completed and the floor for the second story is completed. Framing of the downstairs bathroom and some downstairs windows look like they’re done.
