It has been awhile since I’ve done a house update and that is probably because it feels like it has been a while since I’ve made any real progress. I will not bore you with the excuses of a somewhat unproductive month though. We are back on track and working on a lot of different things at the once.
The nail holes in the Fascia boards are now filled in, sanded smooth, primed and painted and the roof edge flashing is nailed on. I just have a few vents to cut through the South side and we will get started with the shingles on that side in a week or so. For the North side we need to frame the fireplace vent but just found out the fireplace we were given and have been storing for about 3 years cannot be installed because LA County will not allow wood burning fireplaces any longer. The other issue we were having was the fireplace was HUGE! Almost too big for the wall it was going in (deeper then we’d hoped too). In order to get the one we have to fit it would have to encroach into the living room more then I wanted. The last thing I want to do is to give up floor space. McCall and I need to go shopping for a new one now, such a drag.
Dumb stuff: The inspector said that all sheer walls now have to go all the way up to the roof. Our plans did not note this but he said it still had to happen. There are a few sheer walls inside the house that we had to build up to the new roof. Seems like such a waste of time and my “Man Cave” space.
