Guesthouse Walls

Crew was here today and were able to get the main walls for the guesthouse completed and raised in place. Interesting process, each wall was framed laying on the subfloor to include the sheathing and house wrap, then lifted in to place. I helped a bit and the two long walls were heavy! Here are some pictures.

This is the front wall just before it was lifted upright- the sheeting over the windows and doors will be cut out later.

Here's the wall after it has been put in place and braced.

Here are a couple of pictures with all the walls in place.

Plans are to get the interior walls in place tomorrow, then on Monday, a crane will be here to set the roof trusses in place. From there, the roof is finished and then the windows and final work to get the house dried in will take place.

Donna and I will be able to start the siding as early as next week, I'll be putting together the material list in the next couple of days to get our board and batten siding ready for delivery.

Two really good days of progress.
