OOOOOOO BEEEEEEE ... the call of the Owner Builder

Just a quick post on the eve of another weekend of work......

After three long nights this week the framing is virtually done on the house, one side has house wrap and windows, the drain lines are in and the main stack is ready to go through the roof. We are planning on having much of the wire run this weekend since Glenn M. placed all the boxes a week ago. It is a lot of fun seeing the place come together.

What really helped give a feel for how the space is going to look inside is the hanging of the doors. As mentioned before, most are older (1920's) doors salvaged in their original door frame. All we have to do for these is pull a few nails and cut the frame down to 4 1/2 inches to fit modern 2/4's. We will also need to strip the doors but all look to have been stained and sealed in the past so the paint is pretty much just falling off.

On tap for the weekend is to get the remainder of the house wrap on and windows installed. After that we are going to run the pex tubing for the radiant heating and hot and cold water.

Ahhh the joys of the OOOOOO BEEEEEEEE (my neighbor Ed's late night Owner Builder call he does through the woods when I am working)
