Framing is completed

The framing of the house is now completed.  This week begins the "wrapping" of the house.  "Wrapping" means to envelope the house in plywood.   Other activities will include installation of doors, windows, and the first stage of plumbing.

The pictures of the finished framing are courtesy of my older daughter Michelle.  She took time out of her busy schedule (mother of a 7-year-old and 4-year-old automatically certifies your time as "busy") to take pictures while we were on the road the last two weeks.

My beautiful grandchildren in front of the finished framing.  At the time
of this photo, one dormer is not quite finished. but was finished later.

This is a 'zoom' of the front entrance to the house.  The opening in the rear
of the house is the 14-feet-high picture window which opens to our little
forest.  Entering the house, the woods will be the first thing a person sees.

The rear of the house at the completion of framing shows the picture
window (middle, and actually a grouping of windows).  To the right is the
covered lanai (my two grandchildren are exploring), and to the left is the
small porch extending from the utility room and master bedroom.
