PUTTING ON THE ROOF - SHEATHING

October 6 - 8, 2008

 

10/7/08 continued ...

Before he left, Dany Anctil offered to help us get some of the roof sheathing material up on the roof using his man-lift.

 
With Jim Knight and his men on the roof, Gene Knox, Roger Miller, Tom Reed, Ron Russell, Bob Stickney, and Sam Stickney kept the men up top supplied with sheathing.
By 2:00 p.m., the roof on the west side of the building was sheathed!
 

While Dany was here with his man-lift, Bob got a "lift" so

that he could attach the guy wire to the power pole.

Getting the sheathing on the east side of the roof went quickly.
By 4:00 p.m. the roof was done!

Done for the day, volunteers Gene Knox, Sam Stickney, Bob Stickney,

John Blais, and Roger Miller stand inside the groomer garage and

experience the feeling of having a roof over their heads.

 
10/8/08 - The mornings were beginning to to get a bit chilly, a reminder that winter was not far off.  Gene Knox decided it would be a good time to move the loam pile to the east so it wouldn't interfere with getting the Tucker in and out of the garage come winter.

Good job, Gene! And good planning ahead!

The next step in construction will be to sheath the gable ends, make the soffits, put in the windows, and do other neccessary work to get ready for the metal roof and metal siding.
