August 30, 2018 – Today Lowe’s delivered the balance of the floor framing lumber. The delivery included the remaining ledger boards, edge beams, rim joists and all the porch addition floor joists.
Even though the delivery was rather late, after the lumber arrived I started installing the first section of the porch floor joists. At the end of the day I had about 8 or 9 joists in place. Tomorrow will be more of the same, porch addition floor joists.
Sadly, I broke the handle of my favorite framing hammer. This is the same hammer I used to build my house.
Hopefully I will find a good replacement.
