Addition | Walls and Stairs
Renovating is no joke. Sorry we’re behind on posts. Bloggers’ constipation… It’s been nonstop since July around here and we’re trying to keep things moving along before it gets too cold! Let’s pick right back up in August.
Framing the Addition Walls
Getting our new space framed was incredible. We have another short time-lapse video for you! It was surreal seeing the whole thing come together so quickly — I had to walk around the block a couple times just to calm maself down. It surpasses our dreams of what the house would look like. I can say for myself, it’s wayyyy taller than I imagined, even from the blueprints. The floor joists were first to get built. Now we’re onto the walls and stairs.
Walls and Stairs
It’s pretty amazing how our crew cranked this part out! The first step was to build the floor trusses for a foundation for the new level. Then they built the walls around the window rough openings. Next, they wrapped them — before they even put them up! Why didn’t I think of that?
And here’s how the walls are looking.
Here’s Keith working in the stairway.
That’s all I got for now! I have to wait for Joe to edit and send me his video footage (cough, cough). But we’re men and women on a mission to get this thing buttoned up for winter.
Hopefully next up: roof trusses and stair details!
