The latest progress

Our Sunday workday this weekend was one that you could actually SEE the result when we were done for the day. It's frustrating to spend hours on a project when you can't even tell you've done anything (for example, I spent several hours yesterday putting screws in the middles of OSB decking). But Sunday was magical. Our attic went from this:

to this:

Ok, so maybe it wasn't "magical." But at least it's nice to see some improvements. And it's almost starting to look like a room up there. We gained about 8 inches of headroom, bringing it up to 7 feet. It makes a huge difference, even if you can't tell from the photos.

Next week:
Sistering the joists on the other side.
