Lots done, lots to talk about. Progress is being made.
Weird. These first pictures are so far back, they look strange to me.
|This was the last little bit of the blue T-111 siding off.|
|Yeah! You know it was bad when the insulation looks better than the siding.|
|With the help of Papa, we got the OSB sheathing up all the way around.|
|Sarah works, Max is the entertainment.|
|With Papa helping, the house wrap went a lot faster.|
|And maybe a little straighter.|
|With all the house wrapped, we could put in some windows.|
Remember, the old way this was done? How they just nailed the siding up right on the studs and had no flashing or weather-proofing on the windows or doors? Yeah, not this guy.
|Flashing tape under the window and over the tar paper. Screws screwed in straight|
|We put putty tape behind the flange and screwed it in. The we put flashing tape over the flange. Bottom first, then sides.|
|Finally, a layer under the tar paper at the top, but over the side flashing tape. And another little bit to cover the cut.|
So Sarah made curtains... Out of sheets. It amazes me how she is able to take whatever, wherever and make it feel like home.
|Don't laugh at our toilet-box nightstand.|
|My amazing hot momma!|
OK, time for a break. Lots of work getting done. Time for some fun.
How about a concert at the George Gorge?
Dave Mathews? I think we will.
|Holy Cow! This place is gorgeous!|
|So is she. Especially when she's that happy.|
|Not a bad place for the boys' first concert.|
|Read the socks and know. We did. We carpe'ed the fuc*^ out of it.|
|No time for too many pictures. It was nice to be in the moment.|
Those windows didn't put themselves in.
And so we leave it today, like this.
|Yeah, we have quite the mess to clean up.|
|But progress is being made.|
|Yes, I may have driven my wife mad. That is a flower pot, on the pot, on the porch.|
