Working despite the weather.

It was a very cold day today so it is as well that the two carpenters are Pittsburgh natives. They hammered and sawed, they moved ladders around, they rebuilt the scaffolding and by the end of the day, as you can see, they have put in the framing up to the first floor level as well as getting it covered in.

The tolerance levels are very tight and the shaft has to be very accurately built.That's a steel beam all the way at the top and there is another one to go in where you can see the small blue square of tarp between the ground and first floors. This will anchor the shaft as well as carry a cantilevered portion which will be at first and second floor level only.

Since tomorrow will be even colder(there is the potential to get to zero degrees F) they left everything wrapped up as tightly as possible.

  1. well, they aren't wasting any time are they? On a day this cold you'd think they might just be too sick to work!


While I write this blog for my own fun, I would also love to know what you think about what I post.
