Several projects go on at once when working on the Beach House. As seen here, the team is working on the eyebrow window and the gable end siding.
More Roof Work
Here, the zinc-coated copper is being interfaced with the asphalt shingles. This requires tremendous attention to detail and pattern.
Working Out Back
In the back of the house, pump jacks are set up to install more siding and the house is ready for the preservative treated, primed pine exterior trim.
In this room above the garage, closed-cell spray foam insulation is in the ceilings and walls. The gypsum board to the right and the plaster bags to the left will be used to finish the room.
“To tile the shower, the first step is installing the Schluter Kerdi Board directly to the studs, fastened with screws and washers,” builder Jeff Sweenor says.
The basement is still waiting on its electrician who will run all of the wires to the panel: blue for Cat 5, black is data cabling, and yellow and white for voltage, according to Sweenor.
