Timbered Floor System

This will sit on top of the concrete basement walls and become the first floor of the house. In the basement looking up you will see the 6x8 joists and 8x12 girts that make up the floor system-- so the burliness of the structure will be visible even in the utilitarian space of the basement.

We took some time out on Thursday to make and enjoy a Thanksgiving feast, but then worked through the weekend cutting the timbers for the floor system. While creating something for myself is so fulfilling that I don't mind stepping up the work pace, I am starting to look ahead to a mid-winter ski trip once the roof is on.
