Here’s The Walls, Ya’ll
Friday, just before 11am, our framing crew started un-stacking the pre-built wall panels and lifting them, one by one, into place around the perimeter of the floor. Again the crane came in handy because each panel weighs between 300 and 800 pounds depending on if it includes windows and siding. Can you imagine having to lift these by hand and maneuver up a skinny ramp and balancing them on the outer edge of the floor while trying to level and secure them in place? Even with all our man power, that would have been tough and dangerous.
Panel “A”, our front door, went first and the crew took a lunch break. After lunch they pushed through for about 2 hours installing the remaining 14 panels. Many of our blogs take longer to write and edit than the assembly jobs have taken. The crew really busted there behinds getting the floor and walls up in just two days. They just came off another job site and they worked hard in the summer sun.
The Incredible Hulk showed up to help finish the job.
Actually the non-toxic wood surface treatment has a tendency to rub off on sweaty hands.
We were hoping our "green" philosophy would rub off on others, but this is a little ridiculous.
