Second phase of the build started, managed to set sill beams, and framed up the platform. Need to install blocking tomorrow and the tie downs. There has been a lot of upgraded codes over the past few years. But working to get a particial framing inspection this week so I can install the decking and start in on the walls during the long weekend. At least that is the plan.

Another great weekend with the shop build, between the few times when the sky opened up with a downpour. Either way the platform is complete and ready for inspection. Next up sheathing and the deck boards.

Good productive day, columns set (both ends notched), beams set, walls set (end wall with overhead was rough, don’t have the wing span). Tomorrow headers and top plates. Maybe I will get started on the deck boards.

Finished the rough openings for doors and windows, all headers installed, too plate nailed down and long walk braced. Looks like I need a day off to get the lawn mowed, better half keeps telling me about it. If I get time after maybe a do some organization around the build site. Have a big pile of drops and the lumber I used for the forms to load into the trailer and slide a lumber pile under the floor and off my lawn.

Thanks of looking and the comments.

Happy July 4th
