The weather this summer has been uncooperative this year, to say the least. At least we've found it to be somewhat of an obstacle with our house building project. But, we are slowly making progress, none-the-less.
Last Friday, the sun finally came out and dried things out a bit and it remained sunny and warm over the weekend. So, on Saturday, we started sheathing in the roof and walls on the cabin. We struggled a bit with trying to get the half-inch plywood up onto the roof, but our new neighbours loaned us their ATV, which had a winch, and we were able to fashion a method of winching up the panels onto the roof trusses.
After we got the sheathing hauled up, our neighbour, Allison, stuck around and helped us fasten the plywood to the frame. She even came back on Sunday to help finish the job. We were very thankful that she did, too, because the poor weather returned on Monday and has been hanging around up until today. We're very thankful to have the neighbours that we've been given. If only the rest of the world could cooperate and look out for each other as we do out here.
The rain has stopped (for the time being) and we're hoping that everything has a chance to dry out soon, as we still have small patched in the sheathing to finish up. We also want to get the shingles on the roof as soon as we can. But, we'll need to wait until some warmer weather returns, as the roof tar/glue shouldn't really be applied in cool/cold weather.
So, apart from a bit of patch up work to do, I guess the major construction work is on hold until the nicer weather return. Forecasts are calling for that to be sometime over the upcoming weekend. We know that the Lord will provide us what we'll need. We just need to be patient and do things on His time frame.
