|Looking West - faint line of West Hills in the distance.|
All the floor trusses have been installed, and covered with the subfloor plywood.
We are using a nice sturdy 1 1/8" thick subfloor, for a good solid feel underfoot, and no deflection to worry the tilesetter.
Subfloor is glued and nailed with ringshank nails per APA recommendations. Just because I can't help myself, I'm adding screws as well. This floor will not squeak if I can help it.

Standing on the first floor now is a different experience; the floor above really defines the volume of the rooms. (And provides some much-appreciated shady places on the site.)
|View from kitchen toward outside of Living Room. Big windows!|
|Soon the bracing can come down in the Living & Dining|
Soon stairs will go in, making the trip up to frame the second floor a little easier.
