All Dressed Up

Framed, roofed and all wrapped up.  If only . . . . The wrap is like thermal underwear for houses.  It's a layer that helps keep moisture and air from leaking in.  

 The porch and balcony go up.  The balcony will actually double as a sleeping porch on warm nights.  It gets a metal roof as well.  Nothing like the sound of rain on a metal roof to lull you to sleep.  You can also see here how the house overlaps the foundation 8 inches left and right – this was done because the foundation measured 24’ 4” wide and an even 26 feet is more efficient in terms of materials.

 And on a rainy day, pre-priming the porch rafters.  Pink.  Did I mention the house will be pink?

No, no, no, no, no!  I shouldn't even joke about that . . .  Now the fun part, for me, anyhow.  The siding is on and painted.  Looks a bit like a Shaker house, no?  But looks can be deceiving.
