Well, the wood arrived.  Along with this lovely potty right in the front yard.
Which really takes some of the effect away when you're trying to photograph the house from the front.
But this is the real deal.  And we all need to use the restroom.

We came around lunch time of day 1 of the framing, and these guys we already hard at work putting up walls.  The first thing I noticed is how rarely they looked at the plans.  They were out, but I never saw them look at them.  I think I'd have to look at them every 5 seconds.  This is probably why I'm not a framer.

The first time we walked into our house with walls.

It was very fun to feel the space.

I'm not sure what these are, but they sure do look important.
They go between the floors.

This is the kitchen wall.

The living room.

Graham has decided he wants to be a builder.

For these guys, this is better than watching television.

Bringing cookies to the guys.

Tying each other up in the back yard.

And playing with random sticks.

And this concludes Day 1 of framing.
Next up, the second floor.
