Here's the latest. My windows arrived. Sheathing over the wheel wells are in place thanks to help from Patty and Janet (my sisters) and a home made scribe (an old compass, electrical tape and some ripped oak flooring). Loft flooring is in which is oak flooring placed upside down for a nice "ceiling". Almost time for the roof if it stops snowing.

The hurricane Sandy wall frames go up...
Earlier we survived an hour long wind storm and now getting ready for steady rain this evening. Hope to get the roof up this week and the weather is supposed to be good. Windows should arrive Wednesday...Take care til next time!

Billy helped me drill lots of holes...

...and doubled the floor insulation. Why? Because I had the space.
The double deck was very time consuming. There should'nt be any cold toes in there.

Hi friends. It's been a tediously busy, and tiring two weeks of vacation. After each day there was no energy to post pics of the build. The first week it rained non-stop so the goal of roof up and all dried in fell a bit short. Special thanks go out my neighbors; Tom, George, Kerri and Ray. My friend Billy who has a knack for showing up at the right moments. My parents who delivered an occassional meal when there was no time to stop. My sister Patty for placing the decking and general consulting. My bro in law Rick for making a much needed lumber run. Jess and Cassie from work to make sure my coffee maker was workin right and also got there hands dirty a bit. Also,, Steve from Tumbleweeds who sent me the updated plans for the Fencl. So here here's what you missed so far as the wind is picking up and rain on the way...

My deck boards are lower than usual.
