Roof Is Complete

The summer heat has finally broke and the building season has commenced. And it is especially exciting to start the season with a major milestone. The metal has been added to the roof and the roof is now finished.


I had help with the roof metal. A neighbor and his talented crew did the installation.


Also a significant portion of closing in the walls to the roof has been completed. Here is the southeast corner before...

  And also the northeast corner before...

 I'm very happy to be building again. Next will be closing in above the door to the roof then all wall work will be completed. Another milestone accomplished.


Here some of my neighbors are taking a rest. This is the view out of the west window of the cottage.


Here I am testing out the building as an office space. It passed the test!


When the wall work is finished next up will be preparing the walls for plaster, windows, door, floor, ceiling, countertops, and sitting area.
