  • Framing Day3 - The third day of framing.

12th March 2008

Framing Day3 - The third day of framing.

Progress is right on time.  We ordered the second delivery of lumber including the front and rear exterior doors.  The team has done quite a  bit of demo work including the rear exterior wall, fireplace, and more interior brick work.  They are moving along nicely and I’m really satisfied thus far.  We did a “no-rain dance” today so hopefully it works.  Luckily the only rain has occured over the weekend however,  the interior still becomes fairly wet.  Once we get the roof framed, we won’t need to worry as much about the rain. Sorry about the size of the pictures but I don’t have my image editing software with me in the field.  Flipping houses requires a lot of hours spent outside therefore, I typically post from  my laptop.

As you can we did not demo the existing footings but we will need to repair them and add more concrete and do some brick work.  We can rebuild the rear of the house on top of the existing footings and avoid a major expense.

The second floor joists are also pocketed and cemented so the subfloor will be in place, probably by the end of the day.   The plan is to move up to the the third floor and then the roof prior to framing the interior walls. 

These images are going to eat at my bandwidth and storage limits, which means I’ll need to adjust the sizes later.

Finally, here is a shot from the first floor.  I can start to see how my floor plan design will look.  It never fails that there will be changes as we go, but hopefully not too many.  At least I know my framers won’t be happy if there are too many updates to the plans.  I may also post an image of the floor plans for this house.  I promise the pictures won’t take as long to load.. :-)
