Luckily, beginning last month, we have reinforcements! Our framing sub-contractors have begun their portion of the project, which will include additional work on the existing structure, re-roofing the home and adding roof dormers to the front of the roofline, and framing the entire addition we are adding to the rear of the home, in addition to getting the exterior completely ready for the installation of the Hardi-Plank siding.
To date, they have been hard at work reframing the entire exterior of the home, replacing the old studs with solid 2x6 studs around the full perimeter which serves to level the inside and outside of all four exterior walls. As they complete a section, the home is sheathed in preparation for the new exterior Hardi-Plank. Here's some additional shots of the reframe process and progress (note the nifty equipment that makes second story work a lot easier!)
Seeing such fast progress on the reframing is so rewarding after the many months of demolition. And, Rob is far from idle these days - he is continuing his work on the home, too, along with serving as the general contractor of the project. Never a dull moment.
