Spent part of the morning putting up the rafters and installing some of the uprights. Nursing a sore left elbow, not sure how that happened. Slowed up by that and the drill’s battery needing recharge every hour (only have one). Its all coming together pretty good. Did some quick measures for the glass roof. Gonna need 6 sheets of approximately 22 x 111 inches.
Earlier I talked about designing the sunroom with Sketchup software. I plan to span the 2×6 rafter 24 on center and the rafter are approximately 111 3/4 inches long. There will have to be blocking put in place, one for sure, possible 2 per rafter, to prevent the rafters from warping in the sunshine.
The Mission: To paint over the ugly builder beige paint scheme that the builders applied to several areas of the home. With all the angles and open spaces, its hard to know where to start and stop. One good thing about paint, if you don’t like it, just paint over it
