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 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.
