Flip Flop House: Framed Walls & Grade Beams

We were thrilled to come on site today and see that we have quite a bit more framing than when we were here last week!  We are now really seeing the house’s size and shape – and its awesome!

This will be the view from the shower (more or less):

One of the items that they were pouring were the grade beams.  A grade beam is a poured concrete member that supports loads.  They span across non-load bearing areas, sit directly on the soil, and distribute loads to the ground.

Next week, we should see even more framing and concrete!  We are stoked – so we know you are too :)

Wishing you a “no-parking-ticket” Wednesday!
