Day 9: My God, it’s Starting To Look Like A Houseon September 29, 2013 at 8:50 am
Day 9 was actually in two parts, we worked for a few hours Thursday morning, but it was so we it became really unsafe walking along the walls.
Speaking of walking on walls, Tom is like a member of Cirque de Soleil up there. You pay big money to watch these guys walk on tightropes; Tom is walking on inch and a half, wobbley boards while carrying heavy loads, and then flipping his hammer around like a semi-pro baton twirler… I watch in awe. When I get up there, I’m on hands and knees, and even then I’m nervous.
So the floor joists are in! It’s really starting to look like a house now. They spent a lot of time making sure things were ‘square’ and ‘plumb’, after living in my current house for so many years I don’t even know what those words mean anymore. We’re still missing a couple of pieces for the main beam, but it’s looking good!
