Framing Pics - Part One
Hauling 20 foot long jacking studs with a short truck requires a bit of ingenuity.
Once the floor is sheathed, the first wall is framed outside / in, and flat.
To save weight, here is an illustration of the header design we used.
Here we're using hangars instead of cripple studs, also to reduce weight.
An overview of the headers in the first wall.

Wrapped, sills are flashed, and windows installed.

Next the sheathing / siding is added and it's time to.......
...jack it up!
(I hate this part, it's so scary to watch; and dangerous to do unless you're a pro like Mark is.)
Wall #1 is DONE!
