I look forward to the support of other owner-builders who frequent this site during this challenging but exciting time for our family. I also look forward to being able to give back to this community and assist others in any way I can with my experiences of the process when we are complete.

Friday, the framers were finishing decking the pitched roof just in time for the roofer to get the final measurements. His supplier was on site to fabricate the panels out of coiled stock, much like gutters are formed. While most are in the range of 19' or so as they cover a side of a pitched roof, the ones that will eventually be curved were 40' long! It took five guys to offload each of them from the loooong table they are set out upon. Not that they were heavy, but to get them moved without kinking.

Framers will spend Monday and Tuesday setting the SIPs upon the curved beams. They brought a trailer load up late Friday, but have quite a few more loads before they are all up at the site.

We had almost a half inch of rain since last night. It may not sound like much, but for here, it's a lot. It's been some time since we last saw rain, welcome in some respects but not in others. But it is supposed to stop and be dry for next week's work. That's the most important thing.

Driveway is finished, and boy it looks great, drives great and with this rain, will consolidate well. The parking area needs to be finished, but that'll have to wait until the electric line from the meter to the house gets hammered out (literally).
