Floor Joists

The floor joists are in and ready for a sub floor. There was a little sawsall action today when I discovered that the south wall (38' long) had bowed out a half inch in the middle during the nailing of floor joists. I set up a string so I could mark where the wall should be and cut the offending joists where they were nailed to the rim joist. That done, I was able to nail the rim joist to the floor joists and re-plumb the wall. I'm waiting on the arrival of ship-lap 1x12 pine boards to deck the whole thing over. Michelle and the girls are headed to Bridgton for a few days and the computer is going with them. So that's it till Saturday.
