Progress on Trusses and Sheathing

Before our Monday morning meeting with Kelli, the amazing builder lady who helps us know what we want, we drove a little way down from her office to see what was happening at the house.

A crane and two men working on the roof. A good sign


There was sheathing going up as well as some of the remaining trusses.

I called the sheathing 'sheeting' because it looked like sheets of board to me, but my sometimes smarter half told me the proper name was 'sheathing'. He knew that because he read the word stenciled on the pile of sheathing sitting on the ground.


The meeting lasted three hours. We did go back and see the house one more time, but we were too hungry to linger so I took a few pictures out the car window.

The men are still up there working. It is very high and there isn't much to stand on. It is also very hot.


How do they do that?



Tuesday afternoon we went back for another look. I got out of the car to take a few pictures.


Front view.


Back view.

Today, Wednesday, we didn't have time to drive out and the weather was mostly thunderstorms. Guessing not much got done today, but we are usually surprised at the amount of progress.

Kelli is talking about having the house enclosed soon and giving us a key to go in whenever we want.

It looks like you have a good roof pitch so the snow will slide right off. It's so much fun to watch the progress. Once it gets dried in, it will seem like it goes slow again. I'm enjoying watching the progress.
