Very uplifting knowing the "dime saved/dollar earned" formula. Each time I get tired and start to think about slowing down or get depressed, I stop and think how this will increase my net worth and financial independence. This is a very powerful psychological driving force.

While the trusses were set on last Thursday, much of Friday was spent nailing 2x6s along a vertical chord ten feet from each long wall. This member ties the trusses together, provides the proper spacing (when measured correctly) and stiffens the entire structure by spreading loads across multiple trusses. Once that was done, they began to lay the subfloor while I went back to drilling the blocking and fastening to the concrete. Saturday morning I went over to begin applying Thompsons water sealer to the subfloor to help minimize issues from rain. To my surprise, three of the crew showed up to continue decking the trusses! As they laid, I waterproofed, and by the end of the day they nearly finished. Yesterday morning, The final pieces were in, the concrete guy arrived with a load of ICFs and we were off to the second floor. It's taken nearly two days to prep for the second floor, building a platform in the stairwell to work off of and truing up everything as by the top of the 14' pour, some small deviations in dimensions had taken place. But at the end of today, the blocks started to get set.

Decking on. This is the floor for the second level.

Did I ever say the garage is tall?! My brother-in-law who came yesterday to help.
