Framing the Walls

There is no other time during the construction of a home when it takes shape as quickly as framing the walls. The 2 x 4 frame work serve as the skeletal support structure for the rest of the building. With all the time spent carefully planning out the placement of each member, we still had to make a few adjustments on the fly. These changes were mostly made to improve the durability of the structure, but occasionally they were made to save on materials and weight.

  1. Nice work!! It will be really fun when you get the framing all put together!

  2. Thanks, it looks like all the framing will be ready to assemble in a single day. Like a barn raising. :)
