Finally, Framing Has Started

After many delays, and about 1 month behind schedule, framing started on my new house on Saturday, July 20. Below are pictures from the first day of framing and from Monday, July 22 - the second day of framing. I'm surprised at how fast it is going!

Completed Foundation

Yesterday, my builder finished the foundation. The inspection was done and it passed. Framing was also supposed to begin yesterday, but it was raining so the framers are now scheduled for Monday, July 15 weather permitting. This is the first time I've seen the site in three weeks. I took these pictures today.

He also got the meter for electricity (it's on far right)

Starting the Foundation

On Friday July 5 my builder was able to start laying some concrete blocks to begin the foundation. Progress from here will depend on the weather. It's been raining a lot lately.

Poured Footings

On Tuesday, July 2, my builder had the footings inspected and they passed so he poured concrete in the footings. He also brought some dirt, wood and cement blocks to the site. It's been raining ever since so I hope he will be able to get started again this week - weather permitting. Here are some photos taken by may parents. I am currently out of town.
