A post about posts

The most exciting thing that happened today was that the roof support was cut back and replaced with posts which further opened up the room. In fact, while I was talking to the contractor today, he pointed out that I was standing where the toilet would go. That was somewhere where you previously could not really have stood because of the roof and it felt very natural to be there. Also, the subfloor is almost finished and some framing has begun for the walls.
The door to the room is gone too, presumably to make it possible to enlarge the door frame before the door arrives.


In this picture you can see the roof support cut away and replaced with the posts. One on the bottom left of the picture and one behind the fan.
The new framing is also visible under the right roof support. Some of that framing is attached to the other (brown) roof using (white painted) wood from the roof support that was cut away.
