Posts and Beams Unite

The smell of our tamarack posts is delightful. It's like sugar plums dancing in our dreams, only better. The first of many timbers were installed today. Here's Dapper Dave after a long day at the office checking out the scene.

This morning, the concrete floor was scored to ressemble tile after setting for only one day. Some scoring was necessary around the beams, so we asked the contractor to continue the design in a tile design. It turned out great. The foundation has set nicely without cracking. The cool evening temperatures and not-so-hot days are probably due credit. We didn't begin staining the concrete after all, because Nader the Post & Beam Guy was in the midst of framing. Wouldn't want to stain those beautiful timbers with my floor colouring.

The posts & beams are expected to be complete this weekend. The well will be drilled tomorrow and the roof goes up Monday. More to come!

Wow, Kara, things are really moving along for you. You both must be so excited!
We've had a slight break in the action for a minor injury. I've been trying to fill in by doing the things I can-we should be back on track soon.
Can't wait to see the wall-raising pics~Judy
