Building Update- Entry # 6

Letting the world know this new building is ours
Is there any better way to spend a rainy day at home than catching up on some work? Since I am a week behind with the building updates, I decided to spend my day off on getting caught up. The original plan for today was to do some kayaking at Wright's Lake, but Mother Nature has blessed us
with some rain. So I sit at home on the couch, in front of the TV with my laptop actually on my lap, while surrounded by my pets and enjoying a steady rain. What a great morning!

Now on with the building update...these pictures are from last week, June 18th-21st.

On Tuesday the Trusses were delivered.

It was pretty exciting to see the big truck with the crane show up. Now we are ready for the next phase of this project!

It is really amazing to see the changes in the building as construction progresses. It is fun to walk around inside the structure, envisioning the finished product room by room. We picture the equipment already in place, the cat boarding condos in the reception area, what colors the walls will be. We are also excited to have our own bathroom! We have shared the public bathrooms in the shopping center for many years, and it will be a luxury to have our own!

A glance at the inside

Most of this week was spent rolling the trusses. They finished plating and detailing the frame and completed the upstairs storage room. By Thursday they started the porch trusses.

By Friday they finished the porch
trusses and started "Fascia".

Google describes "Fascia" as:
1. A wooden board or other flat piece of material coverning the ends of rafters or other fittings.

They also "Sheated" 3/4 of the roof. describes "Sheathing" as:
sheath·ing (shng) n.
1. A layer of boards or of other wood or fiber materials applied to the outer studs, joists, and rafters of a building to strengthen the structure and serve as a base for an exterior weatherproof cladding.  

Which is a good thing because now it is raining!
I hope everyone is enjoying these updates. It has been fun for me to do this Blog, chronicling the process of the new building. This is how the building looked on Friday afternoon:
