Second Wall Frame

     The second wall frame has been partially constructed, this is a big one as it covers the entire 6 metres from one side of the house to the other, at the bedroom end.

     There are no windows in this wall so it is relatively simple, and the windows for the bedrooms are on the other walls. This works out better as the view through the end wall would just be looking at the water tank anyway.

First wall frame

     Once again I returned home to discover that magical building work had been done.

     The first wall frame was completely assembled in one day by Josh on his own, all very smoothly until the top plate refused to fit onto the other pieces. The next frame will be assembled with a slightly different method, to try and reduce the problems with the metal warping out of a straight line. Also the purchase of a rubber mallet will help make the pieces behave themselves. If in doubt, bang it out!
