Below is the first of the floor joists.
Here, we have laid out the joists in their proper places and they are ready to be nailed.
Heheheh. . . Workers must survive on something. . . Especially in the hot, summer heat.
From left to right: my dad, my brother, and Jamin. Cutting the joists to size.
And now, securing them in place. Evan's dad (center) was up on the beams for a little while, but due to a bad knee, Evan took his place pretty soon after. I'm amazed at what these guys know, and there's simply no end to learning just what goes into building a house.
My daddy. ^_^
My little brother.
(Sorry, these next two photos are a little blurry, not sure why. . . They weren't when I uploaded them!)
Father and son.
Here, they are nailing up the rim board, which goes along the "rim." :]
Haha! My Evan.
More rim board.
Floor joists, CHECK.
Rim board, CHECK.
And now for. . . Plywood! Or what they call the "sub-floor."
Whoa! (I only got up there once the flooring was down. . . :D
Evan's brother, Tyler, screwing the boards.
Yay! And it's still moving along.
More photos to come, I promise. . . Eventually. I've also got a couple book reviews coming up. So don't forget to come back!
Happy Weekend, lovelies.
