A lot has happened in the last couple of weeks. The trusses were delivered. We put up staging on the north and south sides of the house. Spent a lot of time making sure the walls were straight and true. We put on the lookouts (the wood the supports the gable overhang). We hired a crane and had a small work party to put up the trusses on 12-22-2010. Thank you to Craig, Devin, Adam, and Eric for helping with installing the trusses. We had our first snow storm, which means I can now say that I have shoveled the master bedroom. Finally, during the last week of December we sped through installing the roof sheathing!
Although I neglected to get a photograph of the shadow play on the house during the solstice, I did pay close attention to it. I am pleased to report that the shadow of the neighbor’s chimney traveled just under our first floor windows.
Our next steps will be to work towards installing windows.
