Ready for Framing

Over last weekend I used a pressure washer to blast the parging off of the chimney. It was wet, gritty, chilly work. The contractors came back yesterday and finished up the sides and cleaned up the debris.

Done on Tuesday. Looks pretty good — now it needs to be pointed up and then sealed. That will happen concurrently with the framing.

This afternoon the lumber for the exterior wall framing arrived. The timing could have been better, since it interrupted the back-filling around the north side, but it is a sign of progress nonetheless. Framing should start tomorrow, and the roof trusses have been ordered and should come next week.
