Perfect Weather .. Saturday; Progress is Made

Just as the side yard drifts into full-shade, Siding and Window installation is complete.  A Roof and Barn-Door to finish the structural work. Trim, Fascia Boards and Paint (Barn-Red with White trim) to complete the construction.shed12 A tip worth noting: When hanging Hardie-Board, with Galvanized fasteners, its best to “Pre-Drill”

Sunday Plan; Breakfast in San Juan, by the beach .. A Lowes detour to load up with “Stuff”

Da … Shed, part C + small d

Saturday:     The soft breeze kept the heat at bay until High Noon .. Terry, Shin and I made an afternoon pilgrimage to a gun store, out in Riverside.. All of the California State required paperwork filed.. in 10 days I get to take possession of what I bought. 

I picked up tools about’ 4:30, and finished off the Rafters and all but 3 bays of blockingshed11

Sunday. a slow day, finished the; rafter blocking and hung a few sheets of siding.. Sean helped as Sara was on a Photo Shoot assignment. She made it back in time to catch us in action.  I can only surmise as to what pictures will show up on “face$#^%*!&” book. 

I’m flip – flopping on the door design. One piece Sliding Barn-Door, Double Carriage Doors.  Weather too nice, late afternoon Tea-Time, perfect for some cerebral activity.

Approximately the same mass as a Neutron Star, “Hardie Board” Siding, the only way to go. Buy the best, buy once. I only hope my back agrees.
