After a cold windy one yesterday, yet another spectacular Fall day in Pacifica today. The sub-floor is officially finished, and the posts are laid out and ready to erect.

Downstairs, a couple of the crew have been framing the wall between garage and basement, and also finishing the framing for the bathroom and utility room. The latter has shrunk a little from the original plans, since the insulation lost us a couple of inches and we seem to have lost another inch or two on the other side as well. I'll have to measure the walls and plan out exactly where everything will go, but I may have to ditch the idea of having a sink in there. We'll see.

This afternoon the guys started laying out the wall panels, and moving some of them onto the sub-floor in preparation for installing them tomorrow morning. First, though, the steel posts will need to be bolted to the floor, and since we don't have any bolts that will have to wait until after a trip to Home Depot. In the meantime, though, Hector the Framer hoisted one of the posts into place so that he could get some measurements, and tomorrow morning I expect to see all nine posts up before I witness the erection of the very first wall panel - a moment I've been eagerly anticipating for nearly two and a half years.
