Roof Decking

The roof is finally starting to go on...

Random Stuff

One thing is for sure, the GC's job is never done.  So many random things to do.

Today I spent cutting up trees on the lot.

And started to bury the foundation drains now that the backyard is graded.

Grading for Deck

We cleaned up and graded the back yard to prepare for pouring the deck footers and framing it in.

2nd Floor Framing

Progress continues onto the second floor...


We have 2 steel beams in the house, one on the first floor, another on the second.

Unfortunately, the steel was size way too long on the first floor and actually had to be cut in the field... talk about an eventful day :(  Here is the steel being placed, cut, and then packed out and trusses hung on it...

Luckily, the second steel beam was much less eventful and fit perfectly...

Seeding the Septic Field

I wanted to do more to level the septic field, but with all the crazy rain this summer, I couldn't afford to lose more soil to erosion and it's been to wet to do anything with it.  So I gave in and seeded rye grass for now and will have to redo it all later ...
