This week has been the wildest yet, and shown the most progress since the foundation went in. It has not come without its challenges. First, almost all of the floor trusses were made shorter than they should have been. It was the truss designer's mistake (having designed a stone ledge where there wasn't supposed to be one), so he offered to remake them all. Since they still had adequate bearing on each end, we came up with a solution to keep from remaking them. I couldn't justify turning 20 trusses into trash if we didn't have to. Once everything was worked out and installed, I sort-of-kindly "insisted" on a discount and he agreed.
When laying out the trusses, the second issue was exposed. The pocket for the front beam was poured 16 inches off so the beam was installed too close to the front of the house. I called the foundation sub and he sent someone out to extend the pocket to the right spot. The framer was then able to slide it into the right place.
More pictures attached, we've actually made more progress than shown but I'm running behind on the pictures. Look for another update in a few days.
