We have a roof and Oh, siding material, what a long journey you have made, please come inside!

The roof insulation dried out enough that the roofers could put the Sika Sarnafil PVC membrane roof on, just in time for a lot of rain predicted in the next two days.

Today the siding arrived. It has made a long journey from Switzerland to our home, and I had the pleasure of offloading it with a forklift (of which I have only driven once before in my life) very carefully. This is really great cement board that has an integrated color all the way through. No painting, no re-painting, EVER! It will be used as the siding for the front area of the home, and a different color for the roof fascia. I got it safely in the garage, where it will wait for install.

Lastly, after the rain that soaked the house, and somewhat messed up the (finished) concrete floors last week, I threw some OSB plywood over the windows to keep the wind driven rain from the oncoming storm out of the house.

Next we put the 2″ of exterior foam insulation on the house, covered by Vaproshield house wrap, and get the windows installed about October 12.

The roof finish material installed, no rain can get through now!
