We are back at it again, chugging away on the roof portion of our garage apartment. We counted up about 8 steps of the roof building process. We are chipping away, every week.
Once all of the felt paper was in place, we were ready to begin measuring & cutting the sleeper rafters.
Once we got those all nailed in place, we began measuring & cutting the blocking that goes between the sleeper rafters. We also figured out where we want the recessed lights to go, and built boxes and began putting those up as well.
We also got the piles of leftover logs picked up and cut into lumber. And, we moved the RV to a different part of the property, to make room for the house logs that we HOPE will be delivered soon. Those logs will be alot longer, so we'll need all the room we can get.
Pray that it doesn't rain, because our cypress house logs are still standing in a swamp right now. We would love for it to be dry enough to get them in the next month or so. Regardless of when we get them, we know it will be perfect timing! We've got plenty to do in the meantime...
