Framing Ridiculously Fast

Lendell’s house (my first design) is going up almost faster than I can follow. By now they’ve framed and sheathed almost everything and are preparing to start roofing. Thanks go to Hope Force, especially their construction supervisor Brent, and a group of young Pennsylvania framers (At risk of misidentifying them, I think they’re either Amish or Mennonite) who work together seamlessly and have nearly superhuman construction abilities.



The house is looking good; I think the high ceilings and unusual kitchen windows should take a fairly ordinary plan and transform it into something special. Better photos to come when I get the chance. My camera is currently broken, so I’m borrowing until I can get that fixed.
