Posted by Joe in Broken Arrow, OK on 1/9/2008

Framing commenced last week and has gone pretty smoothly thus far. Since I have no prior experience building a home, and thus no real familiarity with this process, I can't make a comparison. Nevertheless, I would put this crew up against any other. They work non-stop except for a brief lunch break. The lead framer and owner of the company is terrific. While laying out the lines for the first-floor framing, he detected several errors with the squareness of the slab and a distance error on the long run dimension. He was able to make up for these errors, but made great strides in making sure that the finished product was not jeopardized in the process. Whenever a change is considered or a necessary correction, he thinks all the way through the trim stage to make sure it will look right (quality end result). As of this journal entry they are finishing up installing the ceiling joists on the second floor and installing rafters. By the end of the week, hope to be decked with roofing likely to start first of next week. Plumbers and electricians are next on deck and ready for top-out. Progress pics provided.
