After a full day of work (including a nap after lunch), I finished framing the first component.  Everything seemed to go together smoothly; as far as I can tell, it’s plumb and true.  I had to wrestle with a few of the studs to get them straight, but from my limited knowledge of rough carpentry, I realize that it’s not going to be perfect.  And no bleeding!  (Yes, Lydia, I wore my gloves.)




  1. This picture would be much cuter if I were posing next to you in it. Other than that, good job!

  2. Results! Congrats.

  3. This is Iowa, not Berkeley. No one ’round here is going to believe you built this when they shake your silky smooth hand at the grand opening.

    • Personally, I’d prefer not to have sissy architect hands, but a certain someone in my life sees it otherwise…

      • Even holding a pencil and a straightedge would help, but no…it’s gotta be all software. These modern times.

  4. I’m glad to see that you’re taking proper safety precautions by wearing gloves. However, the potential injuries to hands would seem to be less than the potential injuries to feet – – nice sandals Steve!

    • I KNEW somebody would comment on my sandals. I usually wear steel toe boots, but on that particular day, I wore sandals (for reasons I won’t mention here).
