Front Porch, Under Counter Wall & Stair Framing
The week got off to a productive start on the Starter Home 2.0 site Monday with the front porch posts getting set, the completion of the under counter kitchen wall framing, and the installation of the basement stairs. Now that the low wall in the kitchen is in place, it is nice to be able to get a comprehensive understanding of what the spatial quality of the first floor feels like and I'm definitely pleased with the way everything turned out.
The stairs up to the second floor should be installed later today, which will finally give me the chance to get up on the upper level and observe the basement and bedroom framing, so hopefully that floor turned out as nice as the first. The upper stairs will also give the framers the access needed to transport and install the large second floor windows and get the home weathered-in, which will set the stage for the plumbing and mechanical rough-ins to be able to get started.
