The good part is now its all framed out so you can put up some wall's and windows soon Jeff!!
The OSB sheathing goes up today. Unfortunately the windows were a 3 week lead time.
Plexiglass over the window opening?
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 . Yours will be a proper job, look forward to seeing it finished.
Got some 6 mil plastic I'm going to staple over the openings until the windows come in.
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.
Should be painting in there in a week
coming along nicely, I'm jealous
Vapor Barrier is on about half of the building.
Cut out the holes for the windows.
sealed and ready for windows.
Got the two windows on the west side done today. Two on the north go in tomorrow.
Home away from home
All the windows are in now.
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.
I am jealous. When you coming over to do mine.

It's definitely turning into more work than I though it would be. Not even half of the exterior is done yet. I still have electrical, insulation, drywall, painting and flooring to do.
it will all be worth the time and effort you have invested so far..... short term pain, long term gain
Yeah, I'll keep telling myself that.
