Roof Sheathing 2

Today started out cold and covered in wet, but clear and pretty.

I took this next picture hoping it would be the last time I would see the JayBee covered in tarps. So much for my eagerness...

Same crew, same project. We picked up where we left off yesterday. We started by sheathing the dormers. Arlen and Dale did the installing; I did the cutting down on the ground. For extra strength and stability, we used construction adhesive and screws to install all the sheathing.

We finished! All the sheathing is installed. The east end is trimmed but the west end still needs trimming. After I do that, we can get the underlayment put down. Once the underlayment is installed, I can stop covering the JayBee with tarps. In the sort of looks the same, doesn't it? Feels a whole lot different, though. Feels like progress.
