1232 Residence Update 7
A site visit and some new pictures to share! The slate roof installers are organized and starting work. Using a list developed from the computer program they gather the correct sizes and colors and using the motorized trolley, stage them on the roof. It is slow going on the first couple courses because of the exposed rafter tails. To avoid punching through the tongue and groove decking, slots are cut in the tiles and copper straps are used to reach up beyond the exterior wall.
With a few courses installed we can start to see the pattern taking shape. Its a perfect match so far.
The toungue and groove ceiling is installed in the porch and all the trim is up. This room is ready for screens and paint. Carlos is finishing up the remainder of the work on the chimney so they will not have to walk on the roof once the slate is installed. The framing is pretty much complete inside with the exception of a few walls that are dependant on the cabinet dimensions. With the new structural modifications, we’ve now got one big open space.
We and Ian are hoping the good weather continues a bit longer, it certainly makes construction a little easier. The rest of the pictures will be posted on the FB page. Happy Fall!!
