On Saturday they poured the concrete floor, filling in the old sunken living room pit, and added the new entryway floor and footings. Today Charlie, Adam, and Tim erected the central beams and supporting posts on top of that floor and its footings. Adam & Tim fill in the studs. The insulation will be blown in on Friday from the front entryway.
Sparks fly as Tim grinds off the extra support.
Charlie & Adam are discussing how the beam is going to fit.
The beam has been raised up on the scaffold and is ready to be positioned on its supporting posts.
The beam is in place on top of the supporting posts, but the temporary supports are still in place.
Charlie roughs in the front entrance hall and opening to the front door. A new entry porch will be added and the old door in the background removed.
Temporary supports have been removed and the corner post finished.
