    The OSB sheathing goes up today. Unfortunately the windows were a 3 week lead time.

    This is where I cheated. Got some doors and windows free from a double glazing company who'd removed them to replace with new, and made the holes to fit. But I'm tight with money lol. Yours will be a proper job, look forward to seeing it finished.

    Found a lot of termite damage in the rafters and supports.

    While I have it torn down to the studs, I decided to reinforce all of the rafters.

    To make adding the drywall easier, I'll be removing the hurricane straps the other guy put in when building it. I used 1/2" wedge anchors into the concrete.

    Starting the installing the sheathing. Just got news that my windows came in last night.
    Looks like I'm still on budget, so far, I've spent about $2800.

    Window holes are cut.
    Used a router to to make the cut clean. It was an absolute mess though.

    My wife and I added the vapor barrier before we finished up tonight. Couldn't get pictures of it because it was dark by then.

    I'll have limited time to work on it the next few weeks. Luckily I have a 4 day weekend for Easter, so I can get a reasonable amount done then.
