Finished framing the floor tonight.
Old boards Dad sawed on the bandsaw mill unreliable — variable thickness, width and straightness. A lot of it’s warped.
Getting better at using long clamps. Trying to use screws as much as possible.
Will have to get better at cross laps and joints — plan to use a lot to add stability. Need to get better at marking pieces too; wasted a lot of time with a backwards cross brace tonight.
Frame came out diamond-shaped by about an inch. Seems sturdy though.
May box in and seal picture window. Corner of the frame rotted, but building a new one seems beyond my skills. East wall next.
