we have joists!

It’s no fun posting without photos that show progress and last week was dedicated purely to sending back the yucky wood, locating better wood and then having the crew sand it since we were fully booked up with other things.

Here’s what it looked like before they got started yesterday:

Then I came home from work yesterday and there had been a whole LOT of progress. Here are the photos I took this afternoon:

To support all those joists they had to frame a few more of the internal walls and spray paint the visible joist hangers. They’re black to go with our future roof!
