A New house taking form, a boy for the girls to watch manifest before their eyes, or at least get started before they pull out and leave for their homesteads.

 

One of the sketches to see how it was going to look later.  Not to scale or proportion, but it let us realize we needed more windows still.

This door hole that Kiev is standing in has a header at nearly 8′ high. The door is a tall narrow door to add accent to the space magic.

 

 

rodents front wall 2

As I look at this wall I see the two boards that are missing and the one that has to be lowered 4 inches if the toilet in the bath will allow it.

Otherwise, this has all of the front wall framing parts included, and it was plenty heavy to lift and stand. Luckily we have a forklift to help get it started and 6 guys to lift, attach the braces, and stand it fairly straight.

I would estimate that this framework for the front will weigh in at 800-1000 lbs in just 2×4’s and nails holding the wall together. The floor at this point is likely 2,500 lbs at this point.

Well it does look pretty tall, but wait until the rest of the walls get up too.

There is the view from the girls who get to watch the manifestation of their new friend.

From the porch of a close friend nearby, the White Swan watches with a bit of pride, for soon she will get her oil and look just as fine indeed, but also have these pretty posts which will be a nicer breed.

This is not going to pass the test.  The table is too long, and other things too.

I do not like it for the way it sticks out on the ends.  Needs rounding at the least.

So we will change this I believe, but just showing you the option.

Great view from the end that includes the corner trusses I use to add to the strength.

Long Leaf Pine with Milk Paint sanded lightly and then oiled. Heaven’s Porch is a beauty indeed.

 

Have a great day
