Week 4/12 - 4/16. This week we managed to complete the majority of the roofing, and continued with the pick-up framing.

Monday: We continued the pick-up framing from last week, and finally got started on adding the shingles to the roof.

Tuesday: Today we had two new guys from Angoon that were here as part of a career exploration program. They helped us continue our work from Monday.

Wednesday: We finished the first half of the roof and began working on the next side.

Friday: We almost finished adding the shingles, all that's left to do is add the roof cap.

Pick-Up framing

This week we all worked on the finer details of the interior framing. We inspected the whole inside of the house and started preparing it for drywall and other finishing touches.

Monday: we got a short wall built near the stairs, as well as a small linen closet attached to the bathroom.

Thursday: Inspected the interior framing job for anything that could cause the drywall not to fit right. This included checking the walls for their uniformity, plumbness, adding backing where needed, and making sure transitions between studs/plates were flush.

Friday: Started fixing all of the small details that we noticed earlier.
