This week was actualy sunny. the snow had melted the day before, and preatty much all froze into ice(i fell twice during the day). fells a little warmer now in the hosue becose it is almost completly closed in. now the goal today was to keep on working on the ceiling. and start on the walls.
Arriving at the job site, showing the grip guard on the roof, getting ready for the steel roofing.
having passed the broom, cleaning the area off to start laying out the walls on the floor. And, no we didn’t miss a spot, someone’s workign on foaming some small gaps in the ceiling so she made a mess after the fact :P
usign a copy of the plans to chalk line all the walls on the floor. made a big mess refilling the chalk lines lol.
Brad laying out closer to the exterior wall while I was more towards the middle of the building.
we had some people cut the bottom/top plates as we were laying out the walls on the floor. after putting down the plates, you can really see how big/small the rooms are. in this case, small. the three small rooms (from closest to farthest) you can see are study, storage room, and bathroom, in the end is one bedroom.
Brad and I framing the little walls… verry easy to make, 8’ long, 24’‘O.C. all crowns up while framign so we get a nicer finish when the drywall is installed. And you can’t see it but we took off all the 1×4 stapping on the exterior walls because they will be in the way when we erect the walls.
some of the door sizes were not in the plans so I found the door schedule and hung it so everyone could see them. turns out we had to fix a wall’s opening and re layout an other wall. *because the dimension’s on the plans were finished and we needed to resize for the rough openings.
This day was a bit short because i had to leave early to make on time to Ottawa for a friends Birthday party. and we will be out of school next week (reading week), so i’ll post the next workday in two weeks.
‘til then, thanks for your comments.
PS: aparantly we are supposed to have the concrete floors and the roofing done by the tiem school starts again in a week’s time
And….. Chester says hello to all the homerefurbers reading this :D
