2/19/2013 Things are moving quickly again.

Things are moving quickly again.  Unfortunately I can't be there this week, as I had to go back to work.  I'm lucky in that I work a 7 day on and 7 day off schedule, so I do get to spend more time on our build than the average home owner.  Monday and Tuesday were "close up the house" tasks.  The roof has been sheeted, the Typar retaped, and other sealing tasks completed or in process.  Happily we now have the house covered before the next big Winter storm, which is due to hit us late Thursday night.  Tomorrow they will be working on finishing the ice and water and tar paper for the roof.  Shingling will have to wait a little longer.  They'll also be finishing up the exterior chimney race on the front of of the house and by the weekend we'll have temporary heat in the basement.

Not completely weather tight, but will keep most of the weather out while we work.

Looking more like a house every day!
