We’ve completed 11 days of building since 5/13/16 permit issue date. This week 2nd floor joists were installed, stair construction began, concrete footings for front porch located and poured. A dumpster arrived to collect trimmings. A safety rail was installed to help workers installing 2nd floor deck. That’s where we’ll start Week 7.

Builders install joists overhead. Joists support the 2nd floor. Lifting the heavy 20′ long pieces demands lots of attention. All were installed by end of day.
Saturday builders briefing helps keep safety top-of-mind.
Safety rail installed at end of build day #11. We hoped to have some 2nd floor decking installed too, but time did not allow.
The core of Saturday’s build crew joined us from Naval Station Everett Chaplin’s Department. We ended promising to get a special group build arranged so more people could join in.
