Sunday Prince Inventive and I worked on joist hangers...
until Prince Steadfast came to take my place.

After that, there was some (unphotographed) technical tricks for ensuring the walls were straight, and the rim boards were applied around the perimeter.
Only the 'bump-out' section got the 2nd floor joists up that day, but that's already helping to make it look more like a building with usable rooms! Standing in that area, Princess Sassy and I could imagine what the same-sized space above will be like, where they'll have desk and dining spaces.
