Re: 8500 Sq Ft Started Today


Holy i remember those days. I never framed anything that large, but I did do a 4k sq one very similar to this one. It was 7 or 8 years ago, and my knees and back were in a lot better shape then. I now for the most part keep on the ground. Damn arthritis, getting old I guess

I guess cause we covered all the other ply wood and just to make it look all the same. But no other practical purpose

Just curious why the freeze board was not installed? are you going back around to install? seems like you would do it while you were there. Tight, clean framing. nice!
