Windows in and cabin has Tyvek on it.
Here’s a quick up date on last weekend. Finished up the sheathing, which took way longer than I thought. Mostly because there were alot of triangles to cut. Then we moved on to the building wrap. Got it all wrapped up like a giant Christmas present then and went to eat some Mexican food. so good since I was so hungry. My parents were helping me and we got in alot of work! Then on Sunday we started the windows. Quickly I realzed that the window rough openings were a little too small. I think Nate framed them to the exact size of the windows instead of a 1/2″ extra in each dimension. So we ripped off the sill on 2 off them and cut down the studs below the sill with a sawsall then reattached. It was delicate since we didn’t want to tear the building wrap. Also I was able to swap a bigger window for an extra smaller one I had which fit better on one side.
The big windows had nailing flanges and went in easy and are water tight. $20 off craigslist was a good deal for those. The other 2 smaller ones were free but the nailing flange had been removed so I had to shim them up then screw through the window into the jambs. Huge gaps around those ones so I need to figure out how to caulk/flash those ones. Should have taken a photo…
All in all we got tons off work done in a short time and we worked all day so I am really happy about the progress.
