    Standard double 4" vinyl siding like the house, and white aluminum soffit and facia.

    I have a buddy still in the business, he is mainly just the General Contractor now but he is checking his job sites to see what he has laying around for free!! So the color is up in the air. Other wise I was thinking of matching the color of the house.

    What color do you guys think the siding should be? Roof/shingle color? Match the house or go with a black /dark gray?

    Match the house.

    You may enjoy a dark color roof (they look the best), but my AC bill dropped $100 a month (30%) when we installed a light colored roof. So in Minnesota, you may like the dark color roof!

    +1... gives a truely finished look to the build and adds $$$ when you go to sell.

    I would make adding a premium Ice and Water barrier on your roof sheeting a priority. 7/16 or 1/2" OSB will add tons the the weight of a roof when it starts to swell from water penetration... literally have seen 1/2" swell to 1 1/8" and dripping water. Penny wise/pound foolish owner short cut the prep and upkeep....

    Well we made a little progress over the weekend. I just couldn't get motivated.

    But we were able to finish up the roof sheathing, get the house wrap on, and get the windows in and wrapped. The house wrap was a PITA to install. Windy and the tacker kept jamming up on us. The windows I used a new product to me, it is called flex wrap and is used for the bottom drip cap. Now I couldn't get it on as pretty as they do in the videos, but over all it was super easy to install. Ill get some more photo's tonight. Didn't have my phone on me yesterday so I forgot to take photos.

    But here are a few.

    Friday after work.




    We ran short on H clips and 2 sheets of OSB. So there was a quick run to Menard on Saturday. Got the roof sheathing finished and the house wrap on. So I figured this is a good time to move the boat back home.







    Sunday was window install. Pretty straight forward, but no step by step photos

    Rob, you need to make a set of steps coming off the deck directly to the side door of the shed. That way you can come and go without ever hitting the grass.

    Looking very good here.

    I was kinda of surprised you didn't install the house wrap when you built the walls. It is much easier to install with the wall laying down. Looks great though! I am very jealous!

    Could, but the plan is to have a side walk run from the service door on attached garage down to the the service door on the Shed. I already spoke with Brad on it. I want it ground level so the lawn mover can drive right over it. He said no problem.
    Thank you

    It was just the weight of the walls that was coming into play. That is why we also didn't sheath them on the ground. 45' long wall becomes pretty heavy with 530 sqft of sheathing, 2x4's, nails, ect. Plus the wind was also blowing a little that day and did not want to chance a gust coming along and plowing us right over with the wall.

    thank you!

    Picked up some more work last night. Some call me cheap ass, I think of it more like wise spending, and having more boat gas. I quoted brick and mortar stores, lumber yards, ect. evey one on roofing material. Buy doing this I saved a little over $9 pr bundle (42 of them) for the same Timberline lifetime architectural shingles by shopping around.

    Home depot had the best prices on everything! They have a "Bulk order/buy" that really chopped the price on the shingles. In total with #30 felt (no this #15 here), ice and water, drip edge, ridge vent, shingles, ridge shingles, nails, ect. Everything to cover 1400 sq ft. ( roof is a little over 1300, but i rather have a little extra then run 1 bundle short) .... $1450 ! I didn't think it was that bad at all.

    Plus the guys there were really nice and helpfully. I just asked the man in orange that was in the shingle area (Nick). " What the easiest was way to load up 14 sq of shingles and supporting material". He asked me if i had a list. I gave him my H.D. shopping list and he did all the rest!!!, Picked everything, fork lifted and wheeled it all to the cash register, then loaded it in farm truck and the trailer!! I was surprised. I owe him a beer

    Now the draw back ...... getting them to the roof. But the skid steer can lift to 10' so Ill come up with something for the last foot and a half. I'm thinking stacking pallets on top of each other then lift some shingles up from there.

    Sorry didn't take a photo of the ridge vent but here is what it looks like



    All the strap is doing is "making it look good". In all reality it wasn't doing anything.



    Use up building material out of the garage............. and just put more back in it's place . Some day the Esky will be able to park back inside. Pretty soon Ill have to put a blue pill on it since it is parked out side a like Platinum's HAHA

    You can see 2 of them in the pic.

    There are a lot of things my dad and I don't see eye to eye on. Next time I'll take the pic from a different angle! It is embrassing.

    Ok, lets see what what happened over this passed weekend.

    EDIT: Friday after work we were able to get the gable 2x6 sub facia on. Went pretty easy with 2 guys. Didn't take any in progress photos.

    Sat plans: Get materials to the roof and have everything prepped for Shingle Sunday. Weather was awesome on Saturday beside a little windy.







    Ice & water, #30 felt paper and drip cap are on



    Then Sunday I rounded up the troops and pounded out the shingles. We had 3 coil nailers going, and two feed guys. We even took a 15-20 min break about noon. Rain was coming down to hard. So we went in the garage for a Mt. Dew and to dry off a bit. Start to finish and opening a beer in 3 hours! 10:30 - 1:30. Amanda kept the yard cleaned up of flying shingle bags.

    Sunday weather....... Thunderstorms called for all day. it rained all Sunday morning till about 8 am or so, Then the radar showed opening so we were still on for shingling. The rain started back up about 3 or 4 ish.










    Next step is to get the 33 and all materials out of the shed, pressure wash the floor clean, spray off the boat, then get the pallet racking up and get the new boat parts and extra material in the shed. This will give me my basement and garage back . #chitiseverywhere.

    Fantastic Rob. This effort now will give many years of benefits. It is important to remember that when you see KeFurr's pictures running the Mississippi Sound this weekend.

    Thank you Dan. I will keep that in mind Weather in Mn isn't quite boating weather yet at least............ This up coming week weather is projected to only be in the mid to upper 50's with on&off rain showers. April showers brings May flowers.

    It is a learning curve but I'm catching on fast. This is the first skid steer I used with all hand controls. I'm used to bobcats with hand for the drive and feet for the bucket,.
