September 28, 2019 – This weekend I will rinse and repeat the construction sequence that I used on the porch roof section 2. These next couple of posts should be pretty short. Just a brief re-hash.
I finished up the solid blocking between the ceiling joists.
Next came the obligatory trip to Lowe’s for framing lumber. My canoe trailer works out great for hauling 16′ pieces of lumber.
With a fresh supply of lumber, I constructed the mid span knee wall on sawhorses. After it is framed up I lift it onto the roof, over the outside wall, and nail it in place.
With the knee wall in place I set the first span of roof rafters. This is a nice view of the Lookout and the river.
This takes us to the end of rinse and repeat day number one. Tomorrow I’ll continue the second span of rafters in this section. Stay tuned….
It’s very exciting to be approaching the completion of the framing for the porch roof. It is going to be quite an awesome space!
