This is the time of year where the humidity picks up making hot even more unbearable. On July 3 I tried out my new stilts. I convinced Audra that I had to buy them and they would make things go a lot easier. I raised them up as high as they would go, and held on to the wall as I pulled out 187 plastic protectors from the bolt holes and screwed in 187 bolts for the ledger. I still have a blister to prove it.

We escaped the heat to the mountains for the Fourth of July weekend. While there we watched the local parade and since Audra's family is from up there we wanted to get in the parade next year. So when the house is finished my next project is to make a barrel train for our kids and their cousins.

Yesterday the framers started, lumber was dropped and work progresses.

By the end of the week we should have our deck in place and start the basement backfill on Monday.

Basement floor curing.
It's the stilts. They make me look too skinny! I am a real muscular and handsome fellow...
I put those there!
Those too.
The first day of framing with three guys. Laid out the basement and hung some of the ledgers.
The plans called out 12" and 16" OC for the bolts. The Wall Company just made it all 12". It will be a pain for the framers to hang the floor trusses around 12" spaced bolts at 16" centers.
