Framing Day 1 & 2

Good Morning!

The Plantation is taking shape and it looks amazing! They have completed the bottom floor framing. They have the windows and doors cut out too! There are no stairs leading to the 2nd floor yet, so I have not been able to walk around up there (to high for me!) But the contractor took me up in the lift to get a couple of pictures before I decided I was too scared to be that high up!!!! Either way the view upstairs is amazing and when they get the stairs in and I am on solid ground I will tour the area and take a lot more pictures 🙂 The pictures are from the first day and second day of framing. They started framing the columns yesterday and will move upstairs tomorrow. Now that the walls are up in the ballroom, I really get a feel for the size and shape. The porches are huge and a perfect romantic set up for outside tables. If I was a wedding guest at the Plantation, I would want to be upstairs or on the porches, it is really relaxing! Enjoy the pictures, I will take more as things change!

Cheers,

2nd Floor Pour

Happy Tuesday!

No time was wasted this morning pouring the second story of the Plantation! Concrete trucks rolled in about 5:30am ready to pour. I thought 300 yards of concrete for the slab was incredible and nothing could top the amount of work and concrete we used to get it done. WRONG! Pouring concrete on a 2nd floor was a site to see! I visited this morning to watch and was completely blown away by the skill involved to do this. As I toured the 2nd floor on a scissor lift 30 something feet in the air, it was like a dream come true. The view from the 2nd floor is like nothing I have ever seen. The Plantation is truly set apart from other venues, and I can not wait for all of you to see what I have seen! Once the concrete is set (around 4:00pm) I will take photos of this amazing view! The back porch and wall will be framed in by this afternoon, the kitchen and guest restrooms are framed and ready for siding!

Cheers!
