This day is a BIG day. Awesome work by Mid-Peninsula Roofing.
Priming and “preening” the second dormer window before installation. Two up, 7 more to go!
The original Francis House had a second set of gutters on the upper part of the roof. We are recreating this today using metal that will be painted black that will blend in with the custom wooden shingles on the Mansard Roof.
Another design challenge : window coverings for the 3rd Floor with the Mansard Roof Pitched Windows. Option #1 : Wooden Shutters but in an Aged Finish Option # 2 : A sloped black out lined washed linen curtain that would follow the slope of the wall. Please mail your comments and “votes”.…
A pizza break was in order for these 16 men to do a full throttle installing the waterproof membrane (blue material) over the wooden sheathing. Rain means ” NO HOLDS BARRED”. All in a days work ! So until the sun comes out we have a “blue” do. Next up:…
Just happy that the skies have been so clear and blue the past few days as we sheath the insulation.
On a clear day, we are getting the “foundation” for the Mansard roof all prep’d.
The third floor is getting a lot of attention on days like this.
Second section (new angle) of the trusses are up today !
