The Build: 2nd Floor Framing

We just got blasted with a bunch of snow this weekend but today was thankfully nice enough to get some work done on framing the 2nd floor.
This is a view from the front of the house......nice to see the garage framed in....not so nice to walk through all that mud!
Up on the 2nd floor the guys are hard at work. I was happy to see Ben's (our builder) dad up on the ladder.....I think I can finally tell the story. A few weeks ago Jason was helping with the lower level when he was up on a ladder 10 feet high. He had an accident and fell off the ladder onto his right shoulder onto the hard frozen ground. The nail gun he was using fell onto his face. We can't be more thankful that nothing bad happened to Jason but his shoulder was fine and his face his healing after I had to phone a friend (Ben's Wife Amber) to get some dermabond to glue the inch long laceration.
Jason is going to continue to work on the house this week and then will probably have to head back to his 'real' job. It has been so nice having him at home in the mornings, helping me and Austin get ready for work and school. We are spoiled in the mornings with pancakes galore!

Looking forward to seeing the day when the roof gets started so we don't have to fret so much about all the snow.
