How cold is too cold?

So we were unable to dig at all this week due to the weather. In fact, today was the first day in double digits. We are expecting another 3-5 inches of snow tonight. Winter is in full gear here in Ohio. I woke up to -4 degree weather.

I keep glancing at the forecast for this upcoming week, hoping something is going to change. Wednesday and Thursday seem to be the best window. It's supposed to be in the mid 20's those two days. The rest of the week is in the teens. So this begs the question, how cold is too cold?  Houses are built all over the country in the winter, so how does it get done?  It's time to visit my friend Google and see what she has to say on the matter.

  1. We're not in OH, but experiencing the exact same thing in VA. :( It's been single digits to negatives all week, plus the 8 inches we got earlier this week. Our schools were closed yesterday due to the "frigid temps" so I'm sure they didn't work on our home at all. I know they put windows in the two homes that had already been framed, but how can you frame a home and pour a foundation in the freezing cold? :( Time will tell... lets just hope it warms up! Fingers crossed for us all winter builders.
