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!
