5/11/09 – Walls rise to the occasion

The sheeting and walls started taking shape. The main purpose of the sheeting that’s down now is for structural stability of the first floor. The walls are assembled down on the ground and then tilted into place. This is a heck of a lot quicker and easier than trying to build them in place.

This whole house is quite solid. We’ve told the contractor at this point to take their time. No rush. We want to see it done right rather than quickly. It’s starting to show.

Already, we’re starting to see how things are going to shape up when the 2nd floor goes on.

The guy in the picture walking around is my Father in law, Gary. He stopped by this afternoon on his motor scooter to check out the progress.
