But inside the ceiling rafters are done on the second floor and the hurricane straps are nailed in so the second floor won't blow away in a big storm.
Grandma got so excited that the cabin will soon be done that she jumped on a horse to look for new animals for our pastures. How do you like what she found? I told her to wait until the place is completed.
You'll notice that since we have fed the workers, we could take down the tree celebrating putting up the highest beam. Today they worked on completing the dormers over the library/study and the media room/bedroom. Here you can see the work both inside and out.
They also put up the beam for the cathedral ceiling in the loft.
Here's a sample sunset viewed from my library/study.
To make up for the lost days due to the rain, they worked on Saturday. Isn't this getting exciting? They have framed in the shed dormer and the two sides.
Here is the view from downstairs in the great room of the windows for the loft, the upstairs bath, and one of the bedrooms.
It's a bit scary climbing to the loft but the view is worth it. Here we are looking out the upstairs windows towards the east and checking out the view to the west towards our "mountain" in the distance before they frame in the upper windows for the great room.
We're supposed to have great weather all next week so maybe the framing for the roof will be up by next Friday!
