Weekly House Update: Week 5

Week 5 and we have a completely framed basement. Woohoo! Floor joists are in and they should have the floor for our entire main level installed by tomorrow. It’s a very exciting time in the Hyde household. Our framers started last Saturday as soon as the concrete was done and they had backfilled the dirt around the house. Monday it rained most of the day so in three full working days they were able to frame the basement and are working their way up. Love it. So here is the progress we’ve seen so far.

Saturday. If you are facing the front of our house, this is the right side of our house. The yard slopes down and this side of our basement is above ground. We are able to install three large windows in there which will be great to brighten and liven up the basement.

I’m really looking forward to the rooms upstairs getting framed. Then we can see the chicken scratch we drew on a scrap paper 8 months ago actually come to life:) Molly and I have been going out there after work. She’s so thrilled, it drained her energy to make it home:)
