I noticed a gun range down in the basement. Those walls were covered with foam sound proofing. GRIN!

It was a cold windy day for the start of framing today.  Felt more like March than May Snowing
Started by building a load bearing wall in the basement





Made a door way for the stairs to come through


Then put on the rim boards



Then the floor joists (christi on far left-3 ladies from our church in the middle)

This is where it gets exciting. In a couple of days, you will actually see the floor plan of the house taking shape.

Saturday
I was there all day so I have more pics
It was HOT this afternoon  Sunny  nice breeze outside, but not much of it got inside those walls

Today we built & set up the interior walls & leveled the exterior walls
Pastor Bryan on left

Pastor of the Catholic church on right





This guy was amazing! he is professional home builder & was calling the shots today. He could look at the plan & start rattling off lumber lengths & then wham there was a wall.

Thanks Chris for sharing the build with us. I loved framing. I was on a framing crew for 1.5 years we built some 60 houses. It was some of the best experience I got growing up. It helped a bunch knowing how these houses are built.

Interesting to see different building styles based on climate. First thing that caught my eye was the lack of gabble end attic vents. Then I looked as closely at the rest of the soffit as I could in the pictures and didn't see any vent pieces there either. Obviously less need for attic ventilation in such a cold climate... Our shingles down here would curl and crack within a few years without substantial attic ventilation.

Speaking of which, I installed a whole house fan (some people refer to them as "attic fans") a few weeks ago and it has really helped. We still haven't turned on the AC yet this year and we've had several days into the low to mid 90's with mid to upper 80's a daily norm. It does take a little more thought than just sliding a thermostat lever because you have to change which windows are opened or closed based on the time of day and where you are in the house, all the while keeping a decent CFM airflow.

One last story and then I'll quit hijacking your thread! Most people who come over seem to appreciate our approach of going with the flow (or temperature) as compared to most Americans, saying things like how much it reminds them of when they grew up, etc. etc. But we did have one young couple come over the other night for small group that kind of flipped out about how "hot" it was in our house. Laughing If we ever see an EMP, serious economic collapse, or reduced energy availability in this country, people like that are going to have a ha-a-a-rd time. Laughing (Cue Marlon Brando voice) What could happen? So you sweat a little...

That only counts for inside work in 70 degree temps. Sunday school temps. Rangers 1.0 would have been out there and had it done. Grin!
