We were told that the framing would start on Thursday and take about three weeks. To our surprise, Steve got a phone call this morning saying the framers were ready to start today. Turns out there was an error on another job they were doing and they were going to be delayed on that for a week or so. Bad for those folks; good for us. By my calculations, the framing should be done around October 12.
I have a lot of photos to share today. I'll post a note under each so you can understand what's going on. Thanks for reading!

|You can see the black geothermal tubing poking up out of the ground in the center of the basement. The tubing is buried 8' underground and goes out to a field to the south of the house.|
|First day of framing. You can see the backfill up to the outside wall.|
