Framing Begins

Framing is a blast, because framers are fast and progress is obvious. My framer is Jose Magana (Magana Construction), who has framed a couple of houses for my “general coordinator” Steve Kotsenburg (more on that arrangement in another post).

Jose is a hands-on guy and works alongside his crew, which is one of the reasons I chose him. I like being able to deal directly with the person doing the work. The first day, they got the walls laid out and quite a bit of the perimeter put up. Framing will get fussy and slow when they have to put the steel columns and beams in upstairs next week, and when they get to the roof system, which is really tricky. But, for now, the structure is going up fast and furious.

Here is the structure the next week…

The end of week 3…
