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