Emily and the kids picked me up from work and we headed straight to my mom and dad's place so I didn't get a chance to check out the progress that was made all day Friday. Emily and I took a cellphone flash light tour of the work last night after we got back. We aren't sure if the guys worked Saturday or not, but the results are exciting! The plywood has been laid on top of the main floor joists and the back walls have been erected on the main floor.
That opening on the left is where the stairs will go from the kitchen to the basement.
Framing is awesome. It goes up so fast and you start to be able to really feel the space.
