The last few days of the Frame-out

Sorry for the delay, Got home and went right back to work.

Bunch of pic's to look at and progress as you look.

My wife caught this on her way in on Sunday 05-09-10 @ 6:pm.
Ft Davis Fire was arriving at the same time she stopped and took these...

The home on top survived the lighting ignition that started this one.

A few shots off the front porch at the cabin

From the road.
Tom relaxing while doing the washer and nail game.

A shot from behind the site looking West.

The winds were a problem during the entire trip.

Working up...



Another from the road.

Washers is cheaper than the bar...

Got my hat on for luck.

The future kitchen.

Show me what ya want !!!

Our first breakfast in the bedroom.

A special touch was the 90 degree stairway to the bathroom from the kitchen and dinning area.

A look down at the same...

Another look.

The last piece of decking goes on smooth.

Same thing finished with this...

and that's the way it is.


  1. looking good, but you know I was gonna say something about the O.S.B staircase...

    I never seen the side of a staricase framed out with OSB before?

  2. Yea I forgot to order a piece of 1" cdx , but 2 pieces of 7/16" osb glued back to back worked just fine...I'll wrap it with rough cedar during trim-out...and it's glued like a bad boy...


  3. All your hard work is paying off. House is coming along nicely.

  4. scary thought of lightning hitting. I like how you saved your trees and put yer place in the middle of them. It will look like its been there awhile.
