The second floor framing was straightforward.  With the rain continuing to fall, the project I guess will remain soaked until we get the roof on.  The area where the lumber is stacked in this photo is the living room.  As you can see, there is no second floor in that area, and the living room therefore will be a two-story space.  The cantilevered floor framing in the left hand side of the image is where the front entry will be located.  Four steps will lead upto a recessed corner, an interpretation and reuse of the stoop condition common to the neighborhood, but also the recessed corner condition often found on corner store buildings.
