We’ve been framed!

And I LIKE it!

And so it begins.

Jonathan’s son, Tyler, came out two weekends ago to visit his dad and help with the house so some of Jonathan’s siblings who live out of town came to visit and toss a hammer or trowel around as well. It was great! We got so much done in those few days.

Once we get the first floor framed we can backfill. So close. So close. And so many steps to get to this point. I am anxious, as is Jonathan, to get the timber frame up. First and foremost to see if we measured right as we laid out the block (pleasepleaseplease). The suspense is killing me right now.

Jonathan and I have been diligently putting in the floor joists and aligning the ridge boards this last week. It’s been lonely out there now that all our extra help went home.  I think we have been doing pretty good so far, considering we had to harvest all of our potatoes last Sunday. Not by ourselves though, we had a great turn out from our subscribers to get that job done.

  1. It is so awesome. You both are so so so totally awesome. I¹d use that little jiggle you tried to teach me in North Carolina, but I still can not get it to come out right! Just printed both out and will take over to MOM. Hugs to you both! anna

  2. Wow, that basement looks so good – I can’t wait to see what the first floor framing looks like! Fingers crossed it all fits perfectly!

  3. A truly fascinating project. When you said – a long time ago- you wanted a straw bale house, this ain’t what I thought of. Next blocks interesting composition, appreciated the zoom. If the photo below is you Mary, green suits you. Keep up the good job!
