Farmhouse Construction: We are growing up to the sky!

  • A crane came to the site and they installed Flitch Beams (a compound beam made of a steel plate(s) between two or more slabs of wood) and third floor trusses.
  • The Tyvek Building Envelope is up on the building. This product is an essential line of defense against air, water, and wasted energy.
  • The roof SIPs (structural insulated panel) are expected to be installed this week.

This is a good week to drive by and check out the progress!
