Framing & Porch – Day 38

hip roof

We made a lot of progress this week. We designed a “hip roof” to make the roof on the porch look more angular. We are hoping this will start to break up the monotony of the straight lines on the front of the roof line. Additionally, the framers have continued to construct the walls, windows, doors, headers and even ceilings in the addition! The steel beams are being installed this week, so until those go in, we can’t continue with the roof line in the back of the house or the second floor. Right now, the back wall of the existing house was demolished and a temporary wall was put up in the meantime. This means that we are living with plywood walls and boarded up windows!

We are just excited to finally get rolling with the construction and really start to see some progress! Check it out below!
