Floor Framing Continues..

Joists and More

As we finish installing the remaining bearers and accompanying joists over the “Secret Men’s Business “room, the curved template arrives from Brad.

The template at work

It was actually three templates, all about 2m in length which we could tape together to produce a curve as long (or short) as required. We placed the template between each in-ground post, (as these were plotted and placed exactly on the circumference of the curve at set-out) drew a line on the joists, cut and placed the trimmers accordingly, and then trimmed the joists to length. Results are shown above. Nino was ecstatic! So the Template got a name.

Welcome Timothy!

By coincidence the length of the house is 41m, and the radius if the curve is 40.95m. I kid you not. I’m sure this was not by design. It was the first anyone had mentioned it, or put both measurements side by side to actually notice I suppose. Maybe this is good Fengshui?

All joists are now down on the main house frame and extended out to all the decks.

Then all the trimmers are put in, and the decks have been framed.

The house is beginning to shape up.
