A House for John


John’s house is finally under way. Saturday, I helped notch the piles and build the rim joists along with a group of students from Keesler. Since then, Jeremy, Molly, Doug, and Colleen have been making progress on the floor.


I had to photograph this: the builders consulting the construction drawings. It actually does happen!


Beams and rim joists.
