The Framing Inspection

You know that feeling of anticipation when you think someone is going to check out your work with a magnifying glass?  It’s like when you’re painting and you miss a spot in a corner by the floor, you just know someone will notice.  Or right when you send that email, you notice a typo.

We’ve worked really hard with our framing and we were feeling that kind of nervous anticipation.  But when we do really big projects, we make sure we’re prepared.  We’ve been using this Black and Decker Codes for Homeowners book shown below for any questions we may have along the way.

This book goes into great detail.  We’ve used it as a reference for lots of things that are hard to remember from past experience.  Especially things that you don’t do frequently!  Things like what’s the best way to frame a corner, how to put the top plate on correctly, framing out doors and the list goes on and on.

In addition to the inspection, our replacement window installer stopped by today.  He met with Brian to provide instructions on how to take out the windows, and also how to frame them out.  I think the framing out idea we have is going to look really good!

So, how did we do with the framing inspection?  The inspector was impressed by how much and how quickly we had completed the framing.  Especially when he heard that it was just Brian and I working on it.  He really liked the building and the shop, too!  He’s looking forward to seeing our finished project.

Oh, yeah!  Guess what?!  Our work was –


I’d just like to take a minute and say how thankful and proud I am of my dear, sweet husband!  He’s worked so hard to get us to this point and I greatly appreciate it!

Thanks for joining our journey!
