Home Building 101

This past weekend, I traveled down to Tennessee to help my brother in law frame in an addition on to his house. Another of my brother in laws was also there. This is not the first time we have done this sort of thing. Seems like every few years, someone in our family needs a little more elbow room (don’t we all!!). So we get together and start building. I think this is addition #4 that we have done. The nice thing is that one of my brother in laws builds/remodels homes for a living. So he lets us know what to do and we go at it. This weekend, at any one time, there were only two or three of us working on the addition. We framed in the lower level, set floor trusses and sub-floor, and set garage and second level walls. It was hard work, but fun. Here are few pics from this weekend. The first one is how the back of the house was. Will keep you all updated and this project finishes up!
