Second Story Walls and Roof Trusses

It’s been a while since I’ve last posted and a lot has been happening at the building site, aka, the new house!

The floor joist installation was completed, 3/4″ tongue and groove plywood was glued and screwed, and the second story walls went up.  Next, trusses were installed and the roof was sheathed.  We’ve used raised heel trusses so that there will be plenty of room to put in all the insulation that we need!

A second view with the sheathing complete. The second story window on the left will actually be the same size as the one on the right; it is just not finished being cut out.
