The first floor ceilings are almost completely framed now. It shouldn't come as a surprise, but I'm again overwhelmed by how hard these guys work. They are framing from sun-up to sun-down, including the weekends. Besides just their great efforts, they have offered a few ideas on small adjustments to make various aspects of the house better. How is that for service? And they have been right each time. Every time we visit there is something new to oogle over and somehow they seem just as excited as we are. It's great to feel that we are all in it together.
There were a lot of discussions during the planning phase about the ceiling design in the kitchen/dining room area. It's now taking shape and it looks really nice. This will be above a 6x6 square dining room table below.
So there you go...the walls and ceilings are virtually complete on the first floor. Electricians and plumbers up next!
