The rest of Tuesday

In which 2 shirts got completely soaked and still drying.

Cut and installed the 1×4 on top of the wall studs and then did the same with the 2×6 with the front of it even with the front of the top windows.  Installed a 2×4 shim on the end of one of the porch rafters to bring it out to the length of the other two and then installed a 2×4 across the 3 of them starting at the east room wall.  Measured and cut 4 rafters and installed them, then installed 3 2×4's on top of them for the roofing to attach to.  Next with Cat's help, got a 4×6 sheet of the green plastic and put it on top and screwed it down to use as a temp roof at least till tomorrow, just in case it rains tonight.

After looking at how dark it got inside when the plastic went on, I think I'm going to remove it, the 2×4's and rafters and reposition the rafters to allow for 2 more windows up there.  Will add metal and or plastic sheeting at the top, bottom, and seams to handle the water coming off the rest of the roof.  Next summer I'll do what I have to to cut down on the heat buildup.  By the time I finished putting tools and such up it was getting dark and I was done and done in.  Been sitting at the computer watching a movie since, other than a short time out eating supper.  Am gonna do a bit of browsing and maybe read a bit and then call it a night, so till tomorrow… 😉

    Sounds like things are moving along nicely. Waiting to see more pictures. (Hint, hint…)

    Had a Monday on Tuesday–not bad, but the usual things that didn’t work. Network things, that is. The network has been a little weird this year, and continues to be. Configuration stuff, mainly, but still a PITA. Oh, well, this too shall pass.

    Well, gotta go get ready. Have a good day!
