Australia to Texas - Building the Shell of the Barndominium in Nine Days

| 1/14/2013 9:33:55 PM

Day 2 continues the progress and as you can see from the pictures, they are getting close to being done with the steel framework. It'll be fun now to see the steel skin go on the building.

The first and the third pictures are almost exactly six hours apart, so you can really see the progress made during the heat (and I mean heat) of the day. The third picture was taken around 3 PM local time and this crew seems to work about 12 hours a day. It now appears that the roof trusses are completely done and they are finishing the framework for the large porches on the north and west sides of the house portion of the Barndominium. The following pictures show the progress pretty much at the end of the day. They appear to be just about done with the porches as well. In one of the pictures, I see some of the galvalume that forms the roof.  It is on the ground in the foreground in the first picture, so it appears they'll either start the roofing either tonight or probably first thing in the morning.The construction crew made a lot of progress on day one (other than knocking over a couple of mailboxes and letting the horse out of the gate).
