Quick updated, not TONS of progress like I’d like to show but I did finish getting the roofing membrane up. I got a new toy and I have a couple questions. Here are some pictures:

Another quick updated. I am plugging away very slowly for a bit longer! I have been inundated with ‘things’. I have officially cleared my schedule after the 12th of August in order to get back to full swing on the house building. I re-evaluated my schedule (which i should probably update soon) and hope to be reasonably complete by the middle of October. I am kind of bummed to cancel some camping trips and fundraiser stuff but it’s for the best! I need to find my second wind and push through this lull! The good news is it’s going to start looking cool soon, we are moving into the finishes . Thanks for all the support everyone! Here are some pictures:

A quick update! Doing more roof in the morning. The adhesive didn’t come in for the weekend so it wont get finished tomorrow but it’s probably good to break it up a little anyway with the 100 degree weather slated over the next week. We have a gallon and a half of adhesive so I’m thinking we can get 1 -1.5 more sheets up. I still need to run and grab about 30 more pallets. I need to remove the nails from the ones disassembled today and plane them all down a bit then I am ready to get going there too! I got the kitchen sink, the only big items left to purchase that I can think of right now is the washer/dryer and the finishes (drywall, tile, counter-tops/counter materials etc.). Here is what I have for now:

There has been *some* progress. The house is plumbed with the vent and supply lines (pictures to come soon). On the 4th I was able to finally stat putting up some roofing too. It was done pretty much in the heat of the day which isn’t a great idea… but I think we got the system down! We just got one of 6 sheets down but I got a good idea of how much more glue I need to get (it’s on order now) and we can figure out the best way to lay it down. I’m not sure how many times a person gets the opportunity to lay TPO roofing in their life if they aren’t a roofer so I think it’s pretty cool! Here are some pictures of that, sorry in advance for the butt pictures, mom did it!
