Up On The Roof

Woo-hoo! We got the west end completely decked and felted this weekend. It was a good weekend; no rain until the very end but HOT! The clerestory windows start now and I asked Allen if we shouldn't just frame the whole thing and then deck it all at once. He said since we were putting in that truss that was going to weight a good bit that it would be better this way since it would help stiffen up the roof etc. It would provide a little more stable framing to be wrestling with that truss on. I think alot of it was that he just wanted to have something in the dry too.
You know, I was worried some about the pitch of the roof not looking right etc. but I'm happy with it now. The roof on adds more visual weight to the top and I think it all looks fine now. Told you!
We spotted this guy (gal?) on the side of the driveway after it stated raining. It was just sitting there in a muddy spot. Do you think it was laying eggs? It had kind of dug a deep spot behind it. It's shell was about 12" across; pretty good size turtle.

WTG with the roof! It's looking good. As for the turtle...did she or didn't she? Inquiring minds want to know.

Hey Gin! I haven't had time to check and see if that's what was going on or not but i'm going to try to stop there soon and carefully check it out.

I think I'm beginning to understand how all of these pieces are going to fit together.
