Homestead Build Update 2/8/2023

Homestead Main House update: Finally finished getting the exterior siding replaced around the kitchen. This siding was removed to make all of the repairs/ replacement of the lower sill and rim joists. Got Michelle’s new walk-in closet framed up, and repaired the flooring in it that had been cut for the old HVAC system. I also tackled a few ceiling joists that were extremely, and stubbornly bowed. The process of straighteng those was a bit janky (utilizing a 4×4 and a floor jack), but highly effective. Unfortunately, due to poor construction, there are several more that will need straightening and reinforcing, but we’ll get there, joist by joist! Progress is happening on this little old farm house!
