The sub floor is finished, now we can start with the skeleton. After talking with Kappy and Sam we decided to go with a ridge beam and rafters with a drop cathedral ceiling similar to the eco house. Another idea Sam had is to mill some tulip poplar for the ridge beam and rafters rather than buy wood. Sam has a woodmizer portable sawmill and it does quite nice work. Yesterday I sawed up some spalted sycamore into one inch boards. Jenny had a good time learning to use the nail gun to secure the subfloor.
