One of the biggest projects was completed last night with the lifting of the giant steel beam that opens up the new kitchen and supports the 2nd floor load and roof. They ended up building a hoist system to slowly lift it into place. There's still some work to be done before we can remove the temporary walls, but it shouldn't delay our new roof.
Today the 2nd floor exterior walls should be completed and we should have some sheathing on them to support the new trusses. Friday it should look like a complete shell of a house (at least it better).
