Framing Started

I got the first two walls framed up this weekend.  It went well, a bit quicker than expected.  I trimmed the studs down to fit on the foundation wall so I'd end up with a 8' finished wall height.  Had to get a bit creative and rip treated 2x4s in half lengthwise for the bottom plate, as the existing bottom plate is a 2x6 with 2x4 framing.  

Here's Katie, the wonder dog, helping.  Right now, she's "wondering" what's going on in her garage!  The lathe will go right in front of the window.  The bench/cabinets will go to the right of the lathe, near what will be the door.  That's it for this week.  Hopefully the other two walls will get framed up next weekend.
