The framers began laying out the fourth floor yesterday, setting the sill plate and getting the trusses up the slope. We are at a point now where it is easier to bring materials up the ski slope where we offload at the third floor. Those were set today along with the rim board, and they run the decking tomorrow, and then frame it out. Meanwhile, Sandra and I have finished the interior framing on the third level. Finally decided on how to hang the decorative trusses. We'll hang them against the house, attached directly to the gables instead of them hanging out two feet. So I placed the order for the roof trusses and as soon as I have drawings on the gable trusses I'll get them over to the timber guy to lay his out to match.


We are leaving for much of the next two weeks and I am a bit pensive. It seems that so many clarifications have to be made each week that things may get dropped while I'm away. I really don't see how anyone can have a custom home built without being a part of the process. Or maybe they have a more complete set of plans to work from? ;-)

By the way, it snowed today on the nearby mountains. It was at a higher elevation than us, but - did I say the weather is changing? It's only mid-August!

Setting the final floor trusses
The Skytrak has been a lifesaver on the framing. And it has much more to do.
Trusses in. On to the walls!
