Our lumber was finally delivered and framing is underway. The delivery truck was unable to get a permit issued from the shop due to loss of power from good ole hurricane Irene. Hurricane Lee is not treating us nice this week either, and we have been delayed a bit more due to massive rainfalls. I think we're getting used to delays and they don't disappoint us nearly as much, not sure if that's a good or bad thing. Anyone run into rain during framing? Should we be worried about the lumber being wet? There is one spot in the morning room that has standing water, but I hope its all okay! Below are some pictures of the first floor framing that is complete. I'm hoping they will work this weekend when its a bit nicer to make up some time.

|Garage with man door in incorrect place, but we actually think we might like it better here than on the side.|
