The Roof II

We have a roof! Toby and his crew did a great job building us a (very) solid roof. I guess this means that I have to get off my duff and get back on the project.

Here are some pictures that my Dad shot during the process. We're grateful for him being able to be there and take pictures for us.

We obviously need to cut some windows in on the second floor. But at this point, I figured it was more important to keep the weather out than to have the holes for the windows ready to go. Next, we'll start putting in the first floor windows and doors.

The Roof

The contractor we hired to put the roof on, Tobias Marman Construction, began work this week. So far they've been great. I would recommend them to any owner-builder that may need some help with framing up their roof.

First they put down some OSB across the beams to give them a platform to work from.
They put in place the gable ends.
Then they got a crane service to come out to lift up the ridge truss.
They fit it into place.
And this is how far they got. Toby said they would likely be out on Monday to hit it hard again.
