Floor joists

The floor of our addition began in earnest today. Technically the sill plate could be considered the beginning of the floor, but the beams and joists started going in today, and joists are something you can actually walk upon!

Barb and I both came home for lunch, and after I finished eating I grabbed my tool belt and hammer and started pounding in nails. Woo hoo! Don, (the framing foreman), was happy (or at least willing) to put me to work, so I loaded up a few handfuls of 16d nails and took care of about half of the joists and blocking for the “bedroom wing”, pictured above. Caitlin came home from school just before I had to head back to work, so we put her to work as well.

Check out the rest of the pictures in the floor joist photoset on Flickr.

Now, if I can just get home early enough to drive in a few more nails… ;)
