More huge transformations at the building site this week! (note: I was late getting this post published – this was current as of a week ago)
Next up was the sheathing. This adds structural integrity to framed walls. Some people use OSB, or oriented strand board, but we used plywood which is higher quality. OSB doesn’t handle water well – it swells and peels apart. And although we don’t anticipate having any water hitting the sheathing, we accept that we live in a very wet climate and that water has a way of getting everywhere. So we used plywood and have received approving nods from all our site visitors!
We have a trail that leads down through our property to a community trail network. When I go for a run, I always return via this trail. As I emerge from the woods, I have a lovely view of the house site. Check out the transformation thus far!
