3/1/15 - The east and west “bookends” (gables) of the second story are triangular in shape. Four sections of structural insulated panels (SIPs) were fit together like a puzzle, secured, and lifted into place, resting on the two large wood beams. It was about this time that March decided to “roar in like a lion” bringing with it some very strong gusts of wind. The contracting crew was prepared by bracing and tying down the gable ends until such a time that the second floor could be built. Each time we drove by the property we held our breath and were pleasantly surprised that the gable ends were still erect. Yeah! Onward and upward!
