Foundation & Floor

April 2004
We hired out the foundation to Fred Bruner, semi-retired fellow who did a fantastic job. The foundation came out level and square to within a quarter inch and it was done very timely. If anything is out of line after this, it will be Dave's own doing.

Builder Tip: Dave uses a fence stretcher and a home-made jig to tighten the floor boards as he laid them onto the floor joists.

Framing out the "Goal Posts" which will be the wall joists and 2nd floor joists. Friends came to help stand the Posts as they are pretty heavy.
