Two Blondes on a Build Story #11: Framing up the ground floor & raising some beams for our eco house

Hello friends,

How are you doing? I hope you are enjoying the new year so far.

Our Two Blondes on a Build story continues. In this video blog episode, Brett and I frame up the ground floor and raise up some of the hefty beams, putting them in place using a nifty innovation that Brett came up with.

Hint: it has something to do with boats. What a star!

We will be forever grateful to three lovely people we know, who gave us a helping hand when we needed it the most:

  • our neighbour Hamish, who helped us raise a couple of the beams;
  • our friend Dave, who came all the way from Kenora, Ontario to spend a week with us to assist us with putting nails into hold downs and putting plywood in place and
  • our friend Tim, who popped in from the Sunshine Coast with his family and worked with Brett to put some of the bolts in place in the beams.

We hope you enjoy the video.

If you have any burning questions about the ‘what, why, when and how‘ we are doing elements of our house construction please do not be shy and feel free leave your comments and questions in the comment section below the video on YouTube or at the end of this blog post. We will endeavour to address the questions we receive in a future video episode.
