floor joists and such

Posted: 08/24/2009 in basement, house

we’ve had some glorious days. that have enabled us the guys to get some much done! πŸ™‚ yippee!

i keep myself busy keeping lizzie out of the nails and screws that the guys drop along with the jigsaw blades and saws… oh the joys! πŸ™‚ she loves it down there… she has a bday present that she is going to LOVE to use down in the basement! i’m doing my Β best to keep it picked up and clean so the guys don’t have to step around everything. constructions sites are not fun! πŸ˜›

sounds like tonight they are doing some finishing touches on the basement and then moving upstairs for a bit. tonight they will be working on staking out the garage floor footings to be dug out tomorrow afternoon by our handy dandy trusty steve the digger! no more shovels!!!! then we’ll start assembling the main level forms and pour those. then i believe we’ll start stick building the other two sides of the garage – then comes the trusses!

    Yay! I’m so excited you guys are making some good progress now! πŸ™‚ You’ll be living in it before you know, better keep packing. I remember how exciting it was when my dad and grandpa were building our house by themselves, it was so neat to see it all come together…only they took seven years to complete it. lol!
