The metal roofing on the second side was installed in the morning and I added the ridge cap after lunch. This product offered by Vicwest is easy to work with.
Well, not into the house. That has not even broken ground yet. But we can move the house contents from the moving truck to the garage. Another bright morning. Nice to see a bunny rabbit on the lawn to greet the morning sun.
This morning we spent in town getting some lumber and hardware supplies so we didn’t get back until about lunch time. Our neighbor Hugh showed up again and helped install the single door and the garage door as well as two layers of felt paper on the roof. Then I fell off the roof…
Today is soffit and fascia installation. Other than breaking for lunch and supper, this is pretty much all we did until the sun disappeared behind the lake.
Today my father-in-law lends a helping hand. Gina and I built and installed the gable ends and eaves made with 2×6 and finished installing the last of the sheet goods in the walls where the wall sections were joined together.
Here is one reason why we chose this spot to build a home.
We get a lot of comments about the steepness of the driveway.
For anybody who doubted my comments about how much backfill was necessary. When I said over 100 loads, I was not kidding.
Today Gina and I finished the back wall and the remaining side wall sections. Then in the early morning we had some help putting up all the sections and got started on the trusses before the rain stopped us.
This is simply a photo I took the next morning from Gina’s parents house, where we are staying while the house is being built. Breakfast is done, time to get busy.
Aug 11, 2005 – We moved here 2 days ago. Time to get busy. The 20×30 ft garage kit arrives from Central Home Improvement in Antigonish. Great pricing!
