Fireplace "chimney" framed up
Finally we also had to "fix" our king studs. They are 6 columns of 3 2x6's found on the tall west wall that go from the sill all the way up to the top that help stabilize the building during winds. The framers had mistakenly cut into them putting in the window headers. So I had to add 1 or 2 on each column.
Finally after some intense storms on Monday evening we noticed evidence of a lightening strike.
