Next we did the decking, which is the subfloor for the new second floor.
Here's a pic of the floor of the new second story. It's kind of open to the wind and weather.
Which makes it kind of tricky to work up there if you have vertigo.
I have vertigo. I did not enjoy my time up there, except that one last very warm evening when we were scrambling to get the last of the decking on and the whole thing under tarps before the rain. [We did that A Lot during this project.] That last night was glorious. Beautiful warm late October breeze, beautiful sunset, great company [Eric].
Then the weather turned cold. The next step was to raise the exterior walls and enclose the space. Then the interior load bearing walls. Then the roof.
And for all of that, we decided we needed some serious help. And not just the therapy kind.
