The second floor decking is done. The interesting thing about putting up the joists was the discovery that the river side wall "grew" in width. Getting the OSB tongue and groove joints to fit snugly was a bit of a challenge. The incremental gaps must have added up. That was the final conclusion. Playing with the beam and joist positions was a bit of a puzzle, but it all worked out well. This past weekend saw the framing of the stair well and the gluing and screwing of the second floor. It is solid and tight. The two foot centres with the OSB seems to be quite firm.
The next step is the roof framing. It is still looking like a gambrel roof will emerge. It appears to be the easiest approach with the most effective use of materials and space. The interesting part of the puzzle now is which way it will be framed.
We are now considering a green metal roof. This should all be a reality by mid-A
