Week 12 – A lot of work can happen in a week!

Wow!  Week 12 was an amazing week at the lot!  The framing guys were ON FIRE and really got a TON of the framing done!

View from the street.  You can see the skylights sprinkled around.  The left side will eventually look like one continuous piece, but the space behind it will be a trellis

A view from the back of the home theater.  You can see the stairs on the right.  The wall directly in front will host a rear projection screen.  The projector will be in the room behind it, which will serve double duty as a storage room

Nice, long stairs.  We are not sure yet if we are going to put up sheetrock, or remove the flat framing and expose the concrete.  The pool of water is leftover from a rain we had earlier in the week
