Framers got the subfloor on today. One thing nice about them is that they clean up after themselves when they get to a stopping point. We came back after they had gone and the place was immaculate! Swept, all the bits picked up, tools and cords all arranged. The place had been pretty messy the last two days with all the activity. They should begin the wall framing tomorrow.
Got the call I was hoping for this morning. Windows would be delivered around noon. Freight company had taken them to Albuquerque and gotten "two men and a truck" to bring them up to Angel Fire. Crazy but they arrived in a rented Penske truck with a Tommy lift. While I thought we would unload, they did it. Unfortunately only to the garage, not the three floors above. Wishful thinking?! But we weren't taking them that far really. Will do that over the next few weeks. Some of these suckers were huge. How they got them off the truck I don't know. I tried lifting them myself and barely got them to budge. The biggest at 6'x8' must weigh 300 pounds if they weigh an ounce. But they did it. Two guys lifting one guy guiding. The framers can set some of these if they have to wait on roof trusses. But the floors that get roof trusses will definitely not get windows until the trusses are on. No courting disaster of a truss flying into a window as they get lifted into place.
