Week 20: Aluminum Framing Continued

No work today- It's raining.

This marks the continuation of the erection of the Bosch frame system. We've experienced a couple of weather delays so things have been moving sporadically. Our framer, Chuck Moffit began to tighten and square the frame at the key joints so as to finalize the alignment of the structural members. As the photo illustrates much of this takes place with the aluminum "L" connectors. In the background is an aluminum "T" connector that forms part of an "X-Brace" which compensates for the shear forces on the building. Next week we should be done with the framing and into the roof sheathing. Stay Tuned!
