What is this, a truck for ants?
Needed to max out the Genie lift at 35′ to reach the top of the high-side of the house. Not exactly a stable platform at that height (and in the Conmee wind).
Finishing up, way up
The last pieces of fascia are installed, as well as the world’s smallest shingle section.
Keeping it real
They say if your marriage can survive a reno it’s in good shape. If it can survive building a house yourselves from scratch…I don’t know what they say, but it’s super hard. Thankful for a patient partner; my better half and the only teammate that could’ve made it all happen.
Dan and Mike framing up the small (but steep) last little bit of roof section over the master bedroom windows, connecting to the front entrance, which is mostly framed up here.
The roof sheathing and trusses are finished! That big X means “you probably don’t want to fall off here.”
All the Shingle Ladies
The finished octagonal roofing nightmare. There was supposed to be a small saddle framed in the valley, which may eventually have to be added, but for now seems to be channeling water away. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
The winter view from the lower driveway. About halfway complete exterior finishing at this point.
The main windowed-wall of the living room’s cathedral design nears framing completion.
