All in a Days Work

We were told several times that the wait for this framer was worth it.  I am now a believer.  The framer started on Friday and in just one day got nearly the entire basement framed up.  We stopped by the house today and I could hardly believe it.  It would take me an entire week just to get up a single wall.
This trip Becca's parents joined us for the tour.  This was their first time out since we've started construction and were really excited to see it.  It was really fun getting to walk around through each room and start to see the plans that we've been working on for so long start to actually come into existence.
Now as great as it was to see this today it's a little bitter sweet because of some bad timing on our part.  Tomorrow night we leave for vacation in Orange Beach, AL and will be gone an entire week.  If this framer accomplished this much in a day imagine what's he's going to get done in a week.  Obviously I can't complain too much; I am heading to the beach.  But it is slightly disappointing we'll be missing so much progress.  Jason thinks that by the time we get back they'll be working on the ceiling joists for the top floor.  Pretty crazy.
