Tonight, when I drove up to the house the wind was in the midst of ripping off the felt I nailed on last night! A minor set-back. I was sort of expecting that (they get pretty massive winds out there and I ran out of daylight before I could really get the sides nailed down as well as I’d like). I ended up going up on the roof and laying on the felt for a few minutes until the wind died down enough to let me re-nail it. It was probably pretty silly if you were to see it but it worked! I didn’t have to re-do the whole thing, just waited a bit then finished nailing it down. I will have to go through and re-lay one strip of it but all and all it could have been a lot worse. I also went through and finished all the window flashing. I was going to work on the furring but the wind was crappy. Instead I hung some light receptacles in preparation for the wiring this weekend and started to work through some designs for my mill-work.
I have updated my budget and ran some quick numbers, guesstimated about what I still have to purchase and amazingly I am still sort of on track. It will be tight but I am in the 10k range… so far… I have a feeling the finishes is where I will up some of my standards :).
I also heard that my toilet is in town! It is missing one piece right now but will be delivered on Tuesday when that piece gets in. We have a green expo coming up here in town in a couple weekends that I will probably have my toilet in, just so people can see what it’s like and make it not such a ‘foreign’ thing. The green expo is actually a really cool event Boise does. I get to help work on some of the information through the USGBC Idaho chapter. I hope some of my Boise friends can make it down there, there are a lot of great lectures and a lot of innovative companies pushing the edge of sustainability. You are bound to learn something and what’s better than that!? That’s right, nothing ;-). Have a good night everyone!
