The stackers from KC Construction were busy putting up rafters this morning. Those notches at the ends of the rafters are called a bird's mouth, and they fit over the top plate.
Each piece is cut to size on the ground and then lifted up to the roof, including the back-breaking PSL (parallel strand lumber) beams. It took five guys to lift that PSL beam up to the second floor!
Brad said the stackers should be done with the rafters and they should have plywood on the roof by next Wednesday -- a week from today!
Yesterday afternoon, Dennis had come by and put down rebar for the garage floor. Brad told me an inspector will be coming on Monday, and that Dennis will be pouring the concrete on Wednesday or Thursday.
This morning I also stopped by Lowes and picked up three 8" x 8" x 3" glass blocks for the master bathroom.
