January 13

We got rained out today for the most part but we did get some stuff done. One side of the roof has its ice shield and drip edge installed, we installed nailers in the dormers for the step flashing, and we continued to work on the other rooms for sheetrock nailers.

We ended up working until 2:30. There was about 10 of us there. We cancelled Sunday due to the whether.

Next week we will be shingling the roof.

No pictures due to rain.

Construction Update - Jan 7

Last weekend, we continued framing inside the house. The kitchen, living room and master bedroom are ready for Sheetrock and we got some nailers up in the other rooms.

Thanks to Torry, Emil, and Tom for this weekend. You all are missing the fun of working in T-Shirts in January.

The plan for next weekend is roofing. Eric will have the roofing supplies there by Saturday, so we will be working both Saturday and Sunday.

Other activities:

  • Mike and Tom are working on getting the appliances
  • Emil has the Queenship of Mary house plans loaded into CAD and provided feedback to Bill G.
  • Mike has contacted a company that deals with trailers. Found them thru HFHI

Construction Update - Dec 30

This Saturday we had a small crew but we got allot of framing done. We worked on the Kitchen and Living Room. We framed out the ceilings and dormers for sheetrock. We removed all the Toe Holds from the roof and used them for the studs.

Thanks to Torry, Emil, Greg, Bill and Tom for the last two weekends.

Next Saturday we will be back, hopefully we will have roofing supplies by then.

Happy New Year everyone and thank you for your support in 2006.
