We started framing the front porch on Saturday July 25th.  This was our first “subcontractor” crew we hired to work on the house aside from the concrete finishers!

They worked very quickly and within just a couple of days, the porch is framed and sheathed!

Now the framers have moved to the back porch, which is slightly more complicated due to the size and height of the roof, which we recently re-designed to be a flat roof over the patio.

Austin and our friend Tony welded special embed plates which are now bolted onto the walls to receive the beams which will cantilever out over the porch.

We’re moving at warp speed now!  We have the roof trusses ordered and they should arrive within a week.
