Week 6: going up!

Some going up is about to go down.

It’s week 6 of construction at 1133 Shades Crest… and the fast and furious frame game continues.

After dealing with the bulk of the main level last week, seems there’s nowhere left to go but up. But first, some (temporary) stairs…

Stairs!

Stairs!

We can see our house from heeeeere!

And now that all of the subfloor has been installed for the upper level, the downstairs bedrooms are beginning to feel a lot more more like rooms.

As the week progresses, walls start happening in the upper level, and we’re able to see the first hints of the middle volume rising from the kitchen into the upstairs…

Another week of framing, and the shape of the house is coming into focus. Speaking with Will at Green Bottle, he’s optimistic that, despite the financing hiccups that put us a week behind schedule, the house will be fully framed within the original 7-week estimate…

…oh, knock on wood (there’s plenty of that to go around).
