Framing the Walls

Once we hand harvested the Montepulciano, we were able to start work on the house again. Hopefully, we can get a lot done before next week’s harvest. John’s brother is visiting so, the goal is to get the roof on before he leaves!

Since we used Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF), the exterior walls went up very quickly. Now, we are working on framing the interior walls. Here are a few pictures:

It may be difficult to envision, but there are three bedrooms on the south side.

The north side of the basement will be the kitchen, dining area, living area and bathroom.

Next comes the roof (which will eventually be the floor joist of the first floor).
