Exterior Work Continues

The main portion of the roof is now completed and nearly ready for shingles. The shed portion of the roof which covers the window side of the kitchen and the two porches on the east side of the house will have to be done first. This should happen in the next week or so if the weather cooperates. Here are some pictures of the back side of the roof in progress, same process and materials as detailed in the earlier post. The crew also covered the open side of the roof with some plastic sheeting to keep the rain out as the interior staining has started as well.

Most of the windows have been set as well, this was done very quickly and everything seemed to go in place very well- there was one window that had some scratches from shipping and this one is being held for inspection and repair. The picture of the end of the house shows the windows after the external trim has been added. This looks really nice- the trim is actually recessed in to a cutout around the window to minimize the gaps and should make for a very weather tight seal. The picture of the windows on the front of the house show the windows just after they were installed, no trim has been added yet. The inside pictures is from the kitchen looking up at the plastic sheeting that was put up this week.
