A Frame Project: Week 2 and 3

When we first started on this project in late spring we encountered some routine rain fall that sent the crew home for almost an entire week but after the rain stopped we got back to it.

Here’s what happened in week two…not much. Well actually, the dog house entry over the red door is gone!

That’s why we combined weeks two and three, so you could see some action.

We started and framed the dormer that will expand the head room for our stairwell and create a much larger space to put a bed in the master bedroom. We decided on one large dormer to achieve both objectives instead of framing two separate dormers.

You can see the beginnings of what the dormer might add to the interior. You can also see our brainstorming scribbles of a built-in bookshelf on the staircase wall.

This view shows how the dormer relates to the existing shed roof of the laundry room. The dormer lands right above that existing roof.

It’s time to take a deep dive in to window design and configuration next week so be ready to pour over images of the windows of modern homes.
