The second floor walls were the fastest construction of all the levels – by now, Austin knew his exact process and knocked it out. There was also a motivation factor that once we finished this, we will be hiring out more of the trades and the house will really start taking shape.
My grandpa was in town for a week and he insisted on helping Austin. It was over a hundred degrees, but he was out there lending his hand. Such awesome men!
The arched windows above the living room were a pain in the neck for Austin to build – but they are one of my favorite features of the house.
Here it is, on the day of the pour for the 2nd floor walls: Now it’s time to get the trusses ordered – but hold on, we’re talking a bit of a redesign for the roof to allow for a flat roof and future rooftop plaza~
