Inky thinks we’re pretty much finished, though.
No more carrying a bucket out to the well, Jebediah. We’ll have running water right inside the house!
The garden room / mud room area will be like an above-ground basement. Concrete floors, utilitarian features, and ready to do work.
I was right, we do get walls on the second story. That’s good. It’s a long fall when you’re stumbling around in the dark and mis-step.
It’s hard to take good pictures of framing. When you see it first hand, you can tell where walls and doorways are going to be and the house starts to come together in your head. In a picture, though, it just looks like a bunch of sticks. So trust me here, that’s a bathroom doorway and a bedroom doorway and the landing at the top of the stairs. I know it just looks like firewood, but add a little drywall and paint and it’ll be an actual room. Pretty sure we get a roof too.
It stops a majority (50.1%) of the rain over that part of the addition, though.
The upstairs closet will have more storage space than all the closets and storage areas in the existing house combined.
Inky was so happy about this.
Yes, they used a 2×4 for the ridge beam, but the house has stood this long hasn’t it?
