I haven’t updated for a while, so here goes…..Framing is almost done, some hangers, blocking and brackets left to put in then we will get the framing inspection early next week.
I spent a fair amount of last week framing the deck.
My wife, “L” took this past week off work to help out. Together we framed the interior upstairs walls. Then we rented a 26′ Penske box truck that we loaded with 4,000 square feet of rigid Polyiso foam insulation for the roof and walls, we unloaded it at the building site, and proceeded to stack it on the roof, and inside the main floor with an all-terrain fork lift. All I can say is I have the best wife and life partner in the world!
Sunday, with the help of two brothers, we will nail on the roof insulation and cover it with a waterproof material until the roofing contractor comes up mid week and installs the Sika Sarnafil membrane roof. This will be a big relief as it is one BIG step closer to getting the house dried in for winter. After the roofing goes on we’ll put exterior insulation on the walls of the home, cover with a waterproof, yet breathable house wrap, and get windows in around the first of October.
