Week of rain brings window extension jambs

Last week’s rain forced us to shift gears and work on window extension jambs. Since the walls are so thick we need to extend the jambs of the windows. We found a great deal on 1×12 clear pine: $2/LF. Adam was so impressed with the quality of this wood–he spoke about each piece as though it were a person. He has been doing a fantastic job putting together and installing the extension jambs.

I have been particularly excited by this latest progress. Up until now, the only finished surfaces in the house were the second floor floor and the roof. It is really starting to come together.
