Frame assembly – Day 2

February 11, 2011

Day 2 got off to a slow start. The weather was clear and sunny, but it was a bit on a cold side of things: -19 degrees Celsius, which is 4 degrees lower than Finnish building folks typically agree to work at. But our assembly crew wants the job done and they showed up anyhow. Also showing up during the night were the replacements logs that got damaged in the truck accident. Now, with all logs available, the assembly went full speed ahead (as much the temperatures allow).

By lunch time almost 10 rows were assembled. More and more movable scaffolding appear as the walls grow higher. And most of the time, at least two men are walking on top of the logs.

Villa Linnea grows slowly it’s own character. The space for the living room windows gives already a hint of how things will look like.The view from the living room is what we have dreamed off. I guess the sunset in summer over the lake will be something replacing the need for a TV.

At the end of the day 2 about 15 rows were assembled. Also the covered terrace starts appearing in the picture and the first massive pillars take a stand for decades to come.
