Progress is being made with the second floor now framed and roof trusses installed.
You will notice in the above pictures that all the windows have a box around them. To help make this house energy efficient, our exterior walls will be thicker, with more insulation than your average house build. To do this, we are having Larsen Trusses attached to the exterior sheathing, which creates a cavity for the insulation. Our builder, Paul Coutts, can be seen in the above photo applying a special tape to cover all the joins in the OSB to make the house air tight. The picture below shows what the trusses will look like.
We are hoping the windows and doors will be installed in about two weeks time.
