More material. That's a lot of wood.
wood pile #1
wood pile #2
There was a whole lotta' wood on site when I arrived today! It's all for starting the main floor framing~ which hopefully begins tomorrow. I have to remember to tell Nelson Lumber not to ship their "standard framing package"- as things like 1 bag of batt insulation, 1 roll of polyethylene and 1 roll of tyvek always show up with their deliveries. We still have poly left over from the first delivery- and I don't need tyvek yet! I don't want things to get lost, and my little garage is getting very full!
sorted small pieces of wood: ready for re-use!
Also, I've sorted out out "scrap wood" into nail-free piles of similar sizes. I hope this will encourage our framers to re-use the little pieces, rather than ripping down large pieces.
