I hear that. I am a little concerned about the un-treated lumber going through several rain epasodes before I can get the tin on. Seems like we are in a hot dry spell through the work week with rain fronts on the weekends.

The wood will be fine I would think.  We've built stuff that left wood exposed a while with no ill effects at all.

I'll be 55 next month.  I've dropped 30lbs since doc said I had diabetes.  Heartburn is gone after the weight loss.  But still lots slower than I was ten, even 5 years ago.  A lot of the slowing is due to the meds keeping me tired.

 

My dad will be 55 in May.  His meds are slowing him down as well.  Sad the meds that help you end up making you feel worse at times.

I guess I am a glutton for punishment, Last day of the budget year at work so nothing really to do. I put in for 7 sick hours and came home and spent a full day at work here. Finished the roof perlings and hung a couple sheets of tin, then I took a shot at installing a window....... Going on youtube tonight to figure out the right way to add the trim.

Hard to tell in the pictures. Does the concrete slope down hill outside of the

bottom plate?

If not, you should put flashing behind the siding, to cover the concrete, otherwise

you'll have rainwater leaking in under the bottom plate.

 

Good to see your making good headway.

 

 

 

 

Just went back and looked at some pics I missed.

I now see, that the bottom plate is right at the edge of the

slab. All is well. :thumbs:

Not much to report, I had to add a top wall perling to screw the top of the tin in, Removed the window so I could mark the next sheet of tin to be cut. then it got dark and the mosquetos came out. :mad2:

Wasn't sure if the weather was going to cooperate as a cold front hit, man I had a time with the tin. But..... Progress :dancingbanana:

With all the moving around the "mobile work bench" I think I need to rebuild HulkII Starter, it is starting to drag.

Looking good, Larry. On the 'mobile work bench', move it to a corner. Then you can do 2 sides before you move it!
