Strapping And Loft Framing

Strapping And Loft Framing

Our friend Gabe came over to help today, again. Thank goodness because hammering the metal strap all the way around the house, as tiny as it might be, is quite challenging! Although this gave us a good excuse to practice our left hand swing, until we realized it would take us three times as long to make it around the frame.

Once our feat was accomplished, we started working on framing the loft. We were about halfway through when we ran out of 4x4s, so we called it a day. The first test proved that it was already plenty sturdy!

    The picture of you hanging upside down is about what I picture you doing all day long now that you quit work.

      Haha, pretty much Bryan! I’ve walked a mile on top of those joists now… still haven’t fallen. Knock on wood, I have plenty around!
