Day 185: Weathered In

The first couple of weeks of October brought a lot of rain. In fact, half-way through October and it had already been the second rainiest October on record. Not a good thing when you're trying to build a house and it's not quite weathered in. I spent a lot of time with a shop vac repeatedly sucking up water to keep things dry in between rain storms.

When weather finally let up a bit, and the back porch roof was put on, we were able to get the roof underlayment on to more-or-less weather the house in. We're doing a metal roof, so we used a special synthetic underlayment. We also used a sticky-back (self-adhesive) underlayment around the eaves, over the hips and ridges, in the valleys, and where to roof meets the walls.
