Day 303 Wall Framing Almost Done

We just need to complete the second header on top of everything and the walls are framed. When we put rafters on we'll add a few more studs under where a rafter fall but it's good enough for now. We also started framing the center support thing. We are still thinking of running the rafters to a 4x4 square support in the middle, then having a fire place in the center and the chimney through the center. We've also started using the strapping we got the other day to attach the framed wall to the bag wall. Grandpa, you might notice the 17 wall isn't as high as it was when we built it with you, we rebuilt it smaller to make sure it wouldn't fall again and are using the extra filled bags for buttressing.
