I-Joists hanging from Simpson Hangers
Today was indeed the day that the framers started installing the sub-floor. It only took them an hour to get most of the I-beams nailed roughly into place, sitting in Simpson hangers on the front wall (as you can see above) while resting on top of the rear wall.

Tomorrow the rest of the beams will be in position, and blocking will be nailed laterally between each beam. After that we'll be ready to nail down the plywood decking and bring in Chai the Inspector to sign off so that we can move ahead with building the house.
