After lunch, we ambled out and started installing the other half of the purlings on the roof, threw the drip edge into place and started to install those 18 foot pieces of steel roofing the contractor told us would take four people to install. We thought that to be extremely funny, because there was no one around to help. All day long it was only Vick and I working on the project. I'll say one thing though, when you promise dinner to your help after a days work party, it can become pretty expensive...but not if you and your wife are the only ones to show up. Our helpers vanished twice... not a word...gone from the face of the earth.
Today......we will do it all over again, except this time we are applying the finish trim on the gable overhang and the ridge cap. That will definitely finish the roof properly and we can maybe even set the windows and door. Now that would be awesome!
Below are pictures of the building and onlookers from the peanut gallery.
Can't wait to see the door, sidelights and windows in place.....
