Grandfather saw hubby, brother/law, and nephew putting those big 2x10s on the walls and yelled, " What are you doing?"
We had to tell him. He was soooooo shocked and wanted to know why we changed our minds. Simply because that's what I wanted. He just sat on his little porch and watched them work for hours... I took him something for lunch but we all had company so the subject never came up. He seems to be fine with it. He doesn't have much choice.

Those 2x10 20ft floor joist was a huge job to put up. They almost got half of them up. There was many that were warped (crowned badly) and hard to work with. They got the floor framed up to the stair case area.

While the men worked on the house, me and my sister went to town and I bought 22 chicks........they are so cute and fun to watch.
