Actually a couple of part days, I haven’t updated as regular as I should have… but things are moving forward, we no longer have to crawl in through window openings to get to the basement! Progress!
What’s the difference between a deck, a porch and an verandah? I could look it up, but where’s the fun in that?
Speaking of decks, the deck is done and it looks amazing. Party central!
All the doors and windows are in, except for one door.
Son-in-Law Nathanael and I did some of the electrical rough in over the weekend. We forgot to put poly on the light and smoke boxes on the ceilings, which we’ll have to re-do, but overall it went really well. Although wire gets pretty stiff at -20!
Not, not a firm of lawyers, it was the working conditions. The plan was to install the doors and windows, but the snow was melting off the roof, coming down right where you install… the windows. Ditto for soffit and fascia, so we called it a day at lunch. We did get one window in, plus the sheeting for the front wall done, so there was some progress.
Still trying to clean the mud from my shoes, though.
Sometimes Mother Nature smiles upon you, and somedays she doesn’t. Today she smiled on us in a big way, it was up to 8 or 10 degrees, and the wind wasn’t that bad. Okay, it was a bit bad in the morning, but it calmed down a lot in the afternoon. Long and short of it, we got the roof finished, including the venting, so pretty stoked about that.
Also, brother-in-law Joe dropped by, all the way from Australia, really happy to see him, too! So all in all a good day.
