Get Her Weathered in Before the Rains
It is now September 17th and the rains haven't started. We figure we have until the end of October to roof, get gutters and sump pump working, install windows and doors, and side. We immediately start the roofing felt. You have to install the D-style edging to keep the roofing shingles from sagging off the edge of the roof:
By September 26th, more than half the roof is shingled:
By October 3rd, the roofing is done. Windows and doors are getting installed along with the jumbotex house wrap. We even got the gutters installed:
By October 9th, the dormer is sided and painted and the East side of the house is 1/2 done:
We also opted to install white metal flashing over the facia to protect it from the weather.
And by the end of October, on October 31st to be exact, the roofing, windows, doors, and siding are finished. We are officially weathered in.
