Roof Sheathing is Finished, What’s Next?

The framing guys got the rest of the roof sheathing up today, which eases my worries a bit with all of the clouds and rain I see in the forecast for the next 5 days.  While the percentage chance of precipitation is variable from day to day, and over low, I don’t trust the forecasts until I view the hour-by-hour!

On to the Shingles

I was fortunate to talk to one of the GC’s guys this afternoon, and he said they will likely start the shingles tomorrow and finish them on Friday or Monday.  That will REALLY put me at ease, because the OSB sheathing on the roof will no longer be directly exposed.

Next Delivery

It’s look as though the next delivery will be the windows and doors, according to the gentleman I spoke to today.  They would like to have the shingles on before that delivery to make sure there are reliably dry areas to store them.  I asked if the wrap that goes around the house would go up before or after the windows and doors, and he said they’ve done it both ways, so he wasn’t sure which order they’d go in.

Another Update

I will do a run through of the house tonight and see if there is anything else to report on, and do a follow-up post if so.

We Have Trusses!

clock July 20, 2009 18:35 by author Donny Kemick

DSC00367We received another delivery today for our Whitaker Corners Barden Home.  We now have trusses on our house which is very exciting, because we will soon have a “roof over our heads”, so to speak.  The delivery came mid-morning and once again the framing crew went great guns and got them all of them set with the exception of a few small ones.  It’s really nice to know that we will have a protection from the weather very soon.

Here’s a Video of The Delivery and Progress

I Took Plenty of Photos As Well
