Day 24: We have Wood

All the framing materials (beams, joists, lintels, studs, etc) were delivered today.   Carlisle currently stick build their frames rather than use prefabricated sections, with the exception being the trusses which are brought in pre-assembled as framing nears completion.

The polystyrene blocks in the image above are the waffle voids used in the slab construction.  Refer to Day 19: We have a (Poly-)Waffle Slab for more information.

In the foreground of the image below you can see the 300 grade steel beams which will be used for additional strength to support the larger open areas and spans within the house.
