It looks like true to prototype framing. The windows appear to be upside down; I assume thatís temporary.

Like your drawings your framing is neat and clean.

Thanks Rick, Louis, Carl, Jerry, Mike, Larry, Rich, Frank,and Bernd!

My rigmarole continues at a snails pace. Finally finished the door drawing. Had to make changes to the rough opening, hinge supports and arch.



Rough frame with arch installed. I dipped the 2x6 in hot water, bent over a pill bottle, resoaked in hot water and then finish formed it to size with a 1/2" dowell rod. Tiny shims added for alignment. the sole plate will be removed after wall up.





Crow River hinge O#51




Side walls next.
Philip

Outstanding framing construction and doors. Well done Philip. Great idea for forming your archway overhead.
Maybe yes on the "snails pace", but precise work being produced here!

Thanks guys!

Spent the afternoon organizing my strip wood. Mounted some old pill bottles that I cut in short pieces and attached them to an old shelf with small pan head screws. Screwed it to the floor joist. Happy to say I'm a bit more organized!
