Joists for the loft partially up with plywood resting atop

Today we made good progress. We started by putting up joists for the loft floor. The loft floor will be 2x4 joists with floor boards across.

Ceiling rafters which will support the roof

Rafters are also going on, starting on the east side. The added challenge of getting these all to line up across uneven wall sections has been a very cognitively stimulating experience. Our wall sections on the east/west sides have a 6 degree slope, and our roof is around 22 degrees, so all of these upper wall sections involve lots of confusing angled cuts.

As you can tell by the frantically wiggling trees in the timelapse video, today was quite breezy.
