The walls are framed, which can only mean one thing...it's time for another delivery of wood. This time, the roof trusses. Like the floor joists and exterior walls, the trusses were built in a factory and delivered to the site, which makes installation pretty quick.
Sometimes, it's best just to let the pictures speak for themselves. The framers are continuing to work at a ridiculous pace. Don't believe me? Here, look:
Remember when I told you that this framing crew works fast? Well, now they're just showing off. Part of the speed comes from the way that we're framing the house, and part is that they're just extremely efficient. You can always tell when a crew has worked together for a while. It's like watching a ballet or an NBA game - they all know who's doing what when, and can anticipate how they can help each other.
Last week we saw that the wood was delivered. This week, our first floor deck gets installed. In the pic above, you can see a 2x4 stud wall inside the foundation wall, and the open web trusses sitting on top of them. This detail is called a reverse ledge (more on that later).
