We built the first floor deck on top of the foundation and garage walls.

4/02: Dream beams. What you see here will support the entire house.

4/02: Kim poses with the first few floor joists.

4/02: Jeff installs the first sheet of subfloor.

4/02: Kim nails down a sheet of subflooring using 10d galvanized nails. The subflooring is also tongue and grove plus glued at all joints. NO SQUEEKS ALLOWED!!

4/02: The first floor deck is complete (except for around the stairwell - can't complete that until the timber frame is raised).
