Framing is great

Boy, framing really makes it seem real. We can actually walk around inside future rooms. Yay, framing!

One downside to framing is that it's a manly, violent artform that can lead to a baseball-sized hole being punched through the wall over your toddler's bed.

Hey guys, I just found the site and everything looks great! And the introduction of wood into the project is very timely as it means I can now legitimately track your progress from work. Sweet.

You guys are doing a great job, and I can't wait to see the progress in person this fall. Give our best to Erin and Ronan, and say "Hi!" to Beatrix from us!

Hey Curt, welcome to the blog!

To demystify Curt's comment a little, he works for the Hardwood Plywood & Veneer Association, who's stated mission is "To promote and support the use of high quality, environmentally sound, decorative wood products manufactured in North America."

He's also one of my best friends from college, so I could tell you stories about him that would straighten your hair.

I'm late to the techno game as usual. Haven't checked the blog in ages, and WOW! Framing is awesome. I own a framing nailer, and it begs for a use (or abuse) every time I see it. Nothing in my house is held together with screws anymore.

I hate to use the overabused "lol", but that's exactly what I did when I read the title of the entry "Crtl+Z". Funny geek humor.

Wish I had the foresight to do this sort of thing with my house. The interior is unrecognizable from the state it was purchased in. Maybe I can gather up some before/after photos and post them. Yeah, right after I change the kids diaper, finish putting in the trim, hang the door to the foyer, wire the new stereo, feed the kid dinner, touch up the paint in the bathroom, change the oil in the truck...
