We are 1/2 way through the 1-day framing extravaganza at Carol’s Home and things are going very smoothly. The majority of the house was framed out before the lunch break. Carol, James and Alexander Armstrong served the framing crew hotdogs, chips and drinks and the Charleston Trident Home Builders Association provided some hot sopapillas for dessert. The crews just started back to work and right now they are nailing the OSB on and in a little while they will start working on the FROG floor and the roof trusses. The weather has been great – just a little hot and no rain. Keep checking us out on the webcam!
