Days 45-46: Framing the Windows and Doors

After the walls were up, the next step was to frame out the doors and windows.  This is an important step as the boards will keep the concrete inside the forms.  It will simply flow around the windows and doors.  We knew the sizes and number of windows and doors but wanted to make sure it was correct.  We opted to purchase a door and a window of each size so W could check the fit.  These were items we will have to buy anyway.  We just bought them a bit early.

He added a bit of the spray foam to areas that not joining tight.  You can also see that he started putting in some braces.  This ensures that the frame holds its shape as the concrete is poured in.

Coming up next is a one week rain delay.  One of the main things we cannot control is the weather.  W used that time to catch up on some other things.  I will be answering a couple of questions over the next two blog posts.  If anyone has questions, feel free to ask.  I will do my best answer them.
