Home Construction Week 17 Summary
Ryan joined the crew this week!
Things are clipping right along. California’s lack of rain is unfortunately a bonus for us, as we continue to make good progress. The roof plywood, eves, eve vents, and gable trim all went up last week. it really looks like a house! On Tuesday we’ll have the pre-papering inspection. Then the roof shingles and windows/exterior doors get installed after the house and roof gets all wrapped up in paper like a big present.
The roof lines for our 2nd story balcony created a waterproofing nightmare, so we’ve finally come to a good solution on what to do there. We’ll have a 48″ wall on the sides of the balcony, running out 3 feet away from the house. Then the wall will drop down to 31″ and a railing will be installed on top, making it feel a bit more open. This solves a bunch of problems — having a close-up view of our roof, waterproof issues, peering down into our neighbor’s back patio, etc. I love solving problems when the outcomes are good.
Schedule and costs: We remain on schedule (maybe a wee bit ahead) and another week of no change orders! Yay!
Mood: Still in the groove…
