Solid Foundation

The foundation is complete!  Woo-hoo!  The next challenge will be how we're going to frame this with all that cribbing in the way.  In normal home construction, you'd frame the floor and set the walls in on top of it. In this house, we'll have to frame the exterior walls first, then lower the house onto the exterior walls while leaving the cribbing in place.  Then we'll cut out the ceiling joists down the middle and install a huge beam that will support the center line of the house and turn into a cool architectural feature in the new kitchen and living room.  The new floor will have to hang from the exterior walls.
