Nailing up sheathing

Back in November we had sheer braced the knee wall that spanned the front of the house. Tonight’s project was to add sheer bracing to the south rear knee wall. (The dormer divides the rear knee wall into two sections.)

Basically, it was much the same as in November, except we didn’t have to jack up anything (the span was shorter) and we didn’t add a plastic temporary ceiling. Maneuvering big sheets of OSB from a ladder is never fun. I’ll be glad when we have the last section of this done.

    You guys are such hard workers!

    I wonder about your house progress from time to time. With the garden during the summer, you’re probably like us, in that progress slows down. The progress you are making looks good.

    Lynn – No we are really really slow! We haven’t made any progress on the upstairs since the framing was done on the east side. Hopefully that will change next week.

    Leigh – Yes, the garden and outdoor chores do take a fair bit of time. By the time it is dark at 9pm you don’t really want to come inside and sweat on another project.
