The Vals Accessory Dwelling Unit project is out of the ground and under construction.  The foundation and main floor framing are complete with main floor wall framing underway.  Despite the tight quarters of the back yard site and the endless line of storms moving through the Pacific Northwest the contractor has been moving forward.  The project is utilizing advanced framing techniques, most notebly the twenty four inch on center stud spacing (vs. sixteen inch on center).  This reduces unnecessary framing material and allows a higher overall R-Value for the envelope.
