We were ready to hop in my father’s truck this morning for Surrey to pick up all the materials we need to complete the roof. We found a supplier who had everything we needed, in stock. Turns out he didn’t have everything in stock. The 4×8 sheets of insulation will be in later this week or early next week. With my father’s schedule we are looking at a week or more until we can pick it up.
We have been going hard at the roof in anticipation of GETTING IT DONE. Now we have to regroup.
First we have to solve our well issue. The water stopped running a few days ago and after several days of testing it looks like we will have a new controller installed today with running water this afternoon.
We have decided that while we wait for the roofing materials we will start the staining job on the front wall. This morning we put the first coat on about four studs on each end of the building. It was challenging because it is so hot, the drips were drying before we could get to them. We set up the scaffolding at each end and this evening we will put on the second coat before moving it to their new locations further along the front wall.
Chris and Stephen have been busy framing in the first door opening at the East end. After a bit of reading we will get the lath and other items set up to begin filling in with pop cans. We still need to prep the door frame on the west end of the building.
One of our studs that frame the front door opening is really warped so Chris made a new one that will replace it.
We finished the top of the thermal wrap. Picture below. What an inexact job. Think creating a jigsaw puzzle.
The kids and I are going to hit the Kamloopa Pow Wow this weekend early mornings to collect cans. Apparently they don’t recycle so they’ve said we can come and get what we can. Hoping to get what we need to finish.
That’s it for now. Maybe we will take a day off this weekend.
