What a difference a few days and skilled framers can make on a project! Westridge Construction and Laron Builders have been hard at work the last few days finishing the framing of the first floor. You can also see the concrete block elevator shaft in the background. The elevator is finished to the second floor for now. They will finish the third floor of the elevator when the second floor framing is complete.
The steel columns and beams visible within the wood framing are necessary to carry the weight of the floors above. The first floor layout has some large gaps in the bearing walls to promote the “open concept” feel of the design and wood framing would not handle the loading. It won’t be long until the residents will be passing through these front doors to their new home!
