I ordered my roof!
I complain so much about things being expensive but in reality the cladding for my roof and side wall is under 1 dollar a square foot, which is amazing. But still, $550! (side wall and roof, and overlap). I ordered this (http://www.bicwarehouse.com/gentite-white-tpo-roofing-w59gt1407.html)and the adhesive for it. That is my roof, well the base of it, I hope it gets here soon because we have more rain in the distant future and the roofing felt was a complete waste of money with the winds we get out here. I WAS ‘dried-in’ I no longer am.
I also finally started actually running the wires, it was impossible without the doors, stuff just blew around everywhere! It is completely overwhelming to wire things but there is no use in having a fear of making mistakes, it’s better to just go straight ahead and make them so you can learn how to fix them that much quicker in my opinion (there is a whole life motto for me ;-)). So away I went! I am SO fortunate to have people whom I can call on to double check my work. That peace of mind in invaluable! I wired up 6 of the 8 circuits today, one even including a two way switch! I have one more complex circuit and one super simple one! I’d just like to see how I did on the two way switch before I do the next one. I am feeling pretty good about it really though, we shall see!
I believe this (http://www.amazon.com/Avanti-RA751WT-7-5-Top-Freezer-Refrigerator/dp/B0026GE9IK/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=37R5SOCZGKRWV&coliid=I1H6ALGN9ZS7ML) will be my fridge, or something similar, I have also been looking at washing units. I will updated that once I get something a little more solid.
Today I also had the wonderful opportunity to meet Theron Humphrey who has had an amazing idea. I am so grateful to his spirit, it’s very admirable and he’s such a great person! I strongly encourage you to take a deeper look at his project, he has interviewed so many amazing people so far from all over the US. It is SO inspiring to see people chasing their dreams! He also has a bit of a side project with his pup Maddie, she’s a coonhound 🙂 (I have a few memorable quotes but they would be weird on here without the context). It was such a fun and unique experience, thanks Theron!
That’s what I’ve got for now! Here are some pictures.
