raising eyebrows 

Once the exterior framing was complete, the walls started going up and they finished the roof trusses. Seeing the location and sizes of all the windows was very exciting.

After the bulk of the framing was completed, they started framing other details on the house such as the eyebrows over the garage and front porch. (I didn’t realize until this process the differences between an eyebrow and an arch, an eyebrow is a less exaggerated arch.)

Next step is waterproofing the second floor exterior walls. They wrap all of the exterior wood in this material and even carry it inside the windows to help create a better waterproof seal. 

Most of the work at the house during the next phase will be interior, adding in the electrical and plumbing then drywall. Things are really starting to come together!
