4/2 - Got one wall mostly framed out. It still needs all of the framing members that aren't full-length studs, but the full length ones are all there, and everything else is cut and ready to be screwed into place. The pneumatic framing nailer is pretty loud and bossy. It was hard to get my twisted sill plate to bend back into place using nails, and all of this reminds me once again that it is difficult to learn on the job alone with no prior experience and nobody to show me better ways of doing any of the steps. I'm out on my own, and it can be slow and frustrating. But I'm learning, and I'm forging ahead.
