Adventures in Wrapping and Flashing
There's nothing like a steady string of summer storms to make me glad we're building under cover. The storms also made me obsess on wrapping and flashing. A friend came over to the build site to help us maneuver the 9 foot roll of house wrap around the house. (Thank you, Brigitte!) Although I prefer the look of wood to house wrap, it was still pretty satisfying to see it go around the entire structure.
Then of course it rained again and I obsessed over every nail nick and staple hole and had to tape over each one, giving my house what looked like nothing so much as a raging case of measles!
After that my attention turned to flashing and I discovered that because I have windows in various shapes and of various types they each have to be flashed in a slightly different way.
