Today, we finally finished the sub-floor. The joists are down, insulation is in, and the OSB frosting is layered on the top. This has all taken quite a while, but not because we have been lazing about. No siree Bob! We've been hard at work; traveling to West Virginia for a wonderful thanksgiving feast with great company, and climbing our way to the top of snowy Mt. Princeton in the Sawatch Range in Colorado. More on this at the end of the post.....

Method = measure, draw, and slice with a knife.
|Space foam, er, I mean...foam board complete.|

Tomorrow, we start our next phase of construction: the walls. We plan to use 2x2 studs to save space, but still allow us to install adequate insulation. Things will start to get interesting as we will then begin to install our systems like electrical and plumbing.

bonding wood to wood, along with screws of course)
|Mission subfloor complete:|
Approximately 5- 4x8 panels were used to complete the floor.
That's the equivalent of about 160 square feet of floor space.
Now, what is this about an expedition to the top of Mt. Princeton?
Let's let the photos tell the story:

|I like this photo. She is either really happy about the proposal, or she is delirious from the lack of oxygen at the summit. I suspect it was a little bit of both ;)|
