The wash-house framed in

                                                  October 24, 2012

     After a good early start and a finish at sunset, we got the wash-house framed in. It was a tiring day, but satisfying as well. The prep work we did in the rainy days of last week paid off big dividends today.

     We had pre-cut the wall studs last week. Justin was in charge of that job. He took it serious, was careful and did an outstanding job. We had the stud walls up just after lunchtime. The ceiling joists and rafters took us until sunset.

     Much of this lumber was milled from our white pine trees. We did buy a little bit of hemlock lumber, but the rough cut wood worked out very well. The costs savings will be added up later. It does take a little longer, because you have to square up every board before using it. One end gets squared, the other gets cut to length.

     I will say, that by the end of today, I am glad for the strength of the 2×6″ lumber… but sore from lifting it all day! There is still much to do, but the project is well underway. I hope to have it closed in before the bad, winter, weather hits.

     I’m tired, achy and satisfied…and it’s all in a day’s work 😮
