Interior walls

This week we found ourselves short on man-power since 3 of our workers switched out of the class at semester.

Monday: We worked on finishing of the roof, and adding the last of the sheathing to the outer walls, this involved some very tricky scaffolding work.

Tuesday: Started framing the interior partition walls and continued to finish the last of the exterior sheathing

Wednesday: Continued to frame the partition walls, and put several in place.

Friday: Quickly went through a checklist in order to help the house pass the framing inspection. this included making sure the bottom plates of all the walls were nailed correctly, making sure the sheathing was installed correctly, and double checking the Ice and Water shield.
