So, we are putting a second-floor addition and a 10x15 hexagon bumpout on the front of our 1,100 sq. ft. ranch. It'll be great recording it all here and getting advice and support!

The rain held off today until 3:30 PM, which was much better than as forecasted. And in the end it was not much more than a sprinkle, but by the time it stopped, we had packed everything up.


But all of the trusses above the second level, creating the floor for the third level, are in! Howard spent most of the day drilling through the upper blocks into the concrete to set the bolts, 210 in all. He was beat at the end of it about another 70 to drill and set, but I'll relieve him of that tomorrow. Framers will begin decking, Sandra has said she'll apply Thompsons sealer to it if the weather holds. As often as it has rained lately, it's important to get it on to protect as much as possible.

In order to set the four short trusses, I had to put together the front wall of the elevator shaft again. Fortunately, it was much easier this time as I had the garage floor section to use as a template. Howard and I will try to get the other three walls put up before he leaves for home on Saturday. The rear wall will be a bit of a challenge as instead attaching directly to the ICFs, the ICFs are thinner on the second level and we'll have to shim out to meet them.

But all-in-all, a good week in spite of the rain. Just talked to Concrete John and he'll be back on Monday to start the third level!! So far we are keeping close to schedule.
