After the main-floor decking was completed, the framers got busy working on the exterior and interior walls of the house. At this point, I had the full crew of framers (12) working on my job and work was progressing pretty fast. As a bonus, the weather was very good with bright, sunny, and dry days for the framers to work in. I did catch a couple of mistakes though, which I brought to the attention of the lead framer.

The first was with the front pop-out windows of the house. They framed the rough openings for 5' tall windows when, in fact, the actual windows that were to be delivered are 6' tall. Unfortunately, I did not catch the mistake until all the window openings were already framed out. This necessitated utilizing several of the framers from the framing crew to tear down all the pop-out windows on the front of the house, and then re-frame them to the correct size. Very annoying, and a lot of time was wasted to correct this mistake.

The second mistake I caught was in the master-bedroom area of the house. In our design, we have an exterior door leading from the bedroom out onto the deck in the rear of the house. Somehow, the framers working on that wall failed to notice the door that was called for on the architect's plans and was never framed into the wall. Once pointed out to them, they quickly fixed this mistake as well, and did it in a fairly-quick time frame.

I did catch a couple of other minor mistakes made by the framers, but overall they did a very nice job and I was pleased with their labor.

Duffer the dog taking it all in.
This is where the sunken master bathtub will be.
