Second Floor Framing

Despite the mounds of snow (12″) this past weekend, the freezing temperatures that have kept it from melting, and the super slippery ice that has sheathed everything,  my builder has gotten the second floor of the house up. I went out and braved the ice (only one fall!) to get shots of the second floor framing, the rafters (soon to be filled with 12″ of spray foam insulation including the wood to maintain the thermal envelope), the new dormers and of course, the snow and ice.

Here are some new photos:

Rear of house - Master and Max's room

Rear of house - Master and Max's room

 This is the rear of the house, to the left is the back side of the master it faces the water and incredible sunrises. Below it is the Media room, with the dining and kitchen windows. Above the dining is the master bath and to the right is Max’s room.

 

This full shot of the back picks up Abby’s room on the top (north side of the house) and the guest room is below. The door is the rear entrance to the laundry room which will be convenient after summer beach days.

Tomorrow is Christmas Day, it is exciting to think next year we’ll be celebrating in our new green home. Happy Holidays everyone.
