My wife MJ barely knew me at all, when I spent every summer in high school framing houses. That experience made me want to go to graduate school, and stay as far away from construction as possible.
Now I spend my time cooking and building things–and writing. After a dozen years or so, I am framing in my brick oven. It was stupidly simple.
Here’s the rear view.
Easy work, that. I do need to de-clutter all that stuff, but it will be easier once the siding is put on.
Admittedly, the old framer here used as many deck screws as nails in this project. It will take a kiloton nuke to bring it down.
