The frame is up and the roof, or 屋根 (yane), is going up next. With the good weather that is expected over the next few days, it should be up by the weekend. It is looking GREAT!!
The picture below is taken from where the kitchen counter will be. The corner we are looking at will have two huge windows to take in the mountain view. Click on any image to enlarge. クリックすると拡大できます
The picture above is the the top beams and a few of the exposed (old, recycled) timber beams that will be visible on the 2nd floor living space.
Looking like a house!!
The top beams are beautiful, aren't they?
