Happy Solstice to all!
Two complete walls and two half walls are framed, to be exact. The newly installed top plates and half walls provide the first real feeling of enclosure. Most of the design issues with the frame have been resolved. Now it is time to just cut and nail.
Unfortunately, my building vacation from work is over; but the holidays will allow for more building time over the coming two weeks. I am hoping to have all the wall framing including door and window portals done by the first weekend of the new year, along with installation of all of the rafters and the first layer of roofing material.
