House Build: Framing1:29 AM
The house moves on.
The framing was important and stressful!
We designed the floor plans and had over a year to think about them and mentally walk around in it and so we had some small changes, which the framers didn't like.
It was by far the most stressful part so far,
Where the walls and window holes end up is so important, and even things on the plans were framed in wrong,
I realize having the wife as the general contractor is a pain, and then one that cares about losing 3 inches on a wall and noticed is especially annoying.
At one point the framer said "You're killing me! Take this hammer and hit me in the head and just kill me!"
So it's been an adventure fighting for getting things right, and I did feel manly having to deal with it all...everything was how we hoped it would be for the most part and I was glad when it was over!
During framing, we had two huge rain storms that left lots of mud in the basement, and big puddles of mud for the kids.
We never get this much rain in the desert, and it was frustrating!
