Interior Framing | Part 3 Main Floor

Hey everyone,

I'm excited to share with you the latest progress on our remodeling project. If you tuned in, you already know that Craig Deardorff won our 20,000 subscriber giveaway—congrats again, Craig! Don't forget to message us so we can arrange shipping for your fantastic prize, a set of Stabila levels. They're top-notch tools, and I'm sure you'll find them incredibly useful.

Now, let's dive into the details of what we accomplished in this episode. We tackled the task of laying out the posts and headers to support the upstairs area. It's a crucial step in the process, as these components form the structural foundation for the upper level.

First off, I began by marking out the positions of the posts on the floor. With five posts to place, each strategically positioned to support the edges of the upstairs area, precision was key. Using a laser level to ensure accuracy, I meticulously marked the locations where the posts would be placed, taking into account the layout of the room and the desired positioning of the beams.

Once the posts were marked out, it was time to cut and notch them to accommodate the headers. Utilizing a chainsaw for precision, I carefully cut and notched each post, ensuring a snug fit for the headers. With the posts prepared, it was a matter of setting them in place, aligning them perfectly and securing them to the floor.

Next up were the headers themselves, crafted from reclaimed barnwood—a personal touch that adds character to the project. Cutting and notching the headers to fit snugly over the posts, I took care to ensure that everything was level and aligned correctly.

With the posts and headers in place, it was immensely satisfying to see the structure taking shape. While there's still work to be done to secure everything properly, seeing the framework come together was a significant milestone in the project.

Moving on to constructing interior walls, I employed similar precision and attention to detail. From laying out the wall positions to cutting and installing the studs, every step was executed with care to ensure a solid and level framework for the rooms.

As the walls went up, the space began to take on a defined shape, offering a glimpse of what the finished project will look like. From the layout of the kitchen and dining area to the configuration of the master suite, each wall added to the sense of progress and accomplishment.

Wrapping up the episode, I want to express my gratitude to all of you who have been following along on this journey.
