This week the frame has been working its way round the rest of the ground floor. If you look at the house plans you can see that the house is the intersection of two cubes, which makes for a tricky wall where the two cubes intersect. This is particularly true where the west wall of the first floor does not have a ground floor wall below. The first photo shows the beam running from north to south which will support the west first floor wall.The next photo shows the frame for Mike’s pod with the west wall beam jutting out on the left to form one side of the triangular overhang of the porch.Not only has the outside ground floor frame be finished, but two-thirds of the first floor has been laid. This photo show the ventilation ducting threaded through the joists under the floor.
