Well, we did it again!
A productive day. We got all the furring cut for the rain screen walls. I went ahead and taped up the building wrap seam. Tonight is for packing up some stuff and tomorrow we pull the trailer out into the daylight and put the rafters on. Hopefully I can finish wrapping the house too. Plywood goes on the roof Saturday (after the heart walk… feel free to donate to the cause via our team here) and AFTER the walk I am meeting up with a bunch of strangers to sell a good portion of my possessions (hopefully).
I think/hope I also get to meet Dawson, whom I may love! I am not sure how many people are actually aware of the plan but part of building this house means that I get to finally have my dream dog and I have always loved Great Danes, particularly the blue ones, they are so pretty! And who doesn’t think that Dawson is the most handsome pooch ever?? Really. I hope we hit it off! Even so I won’t be actually getting him until nearly the end of July at the earliest, my schedule right now won’t allow me to have the time it takes to have quality time with a pup, so excited to meet him though!
I am thinking I can get a pretty good start putting the furring on on Saturday as well, in hopes of being that much closer to siding. I still have about 20 pallets on site that I need to take apart and we anticipate that I may need to find about 30 more, that will be a big job, and possibly my whole Sunday plus to get those disassembled. We shall see. There is so much that needs to get done right now that I’m not really bothering with a set schedule, whatever part I feel like working on is what will get worked on. There is still wiring to get done, some more weather sealing… The windows will be going in soon. I have the doors down to Bentley to get pre-hung. I think one of the coolest parts for me will be when the windows and doors go in.
Here is my update for now:
