Our friend, Mangesh, came over from Detroit for 24 hours. We literally rocked the house! In the course of 24 hours, we were able to frame two closets (giving us a total of 3 closets opposed to having just the one that came with the house), relocate the floor vent upstairs (for gravity heat) so it wasn't smack dab in the middle of the bedroom, frame out a wall, lift the plywood off of the living room floor, yank up the nails in the living room floor, and shop vac the majority of the house. With the electrician scheduled to come down this coming week, we had to mad dash it in order for us to scope out the electrical outlet locations.
Thank you so much Mangesh!
And to the kind fellas at Sawyer Hardware and Lumber , a big thanks for delivering the gigantic and ridiculously heavy LVL's (that would be short for Laminated Veneer Lumber, thank you very much) along with the load of 2x4's!
