I made a short site visit over the Fourth to check on the status. Unfortunately I timed the visit in the height of the heat wave scorching the Midwest and it was a balmy 103 F! It had been over 6 weeks since my previous check-in and a lot has been completed. The standing seam metal roof/wall are both installed. A majority of exterior wood siding is complete with a prime coat of stain/sealer. The final coat will be slightly darker. The glazing system is all installed as noted in a previous post.

On the interior, the first floor has been laid. All-in-all it went down well and the 2x6 t&g planks seem to provide a sturdy floor with very little spring. We are also diligently laying the exterior deck floor with care to align the boards with the interior floor to create a seamless transition from interior to exterior. We are using blind deck fasteners to alleviate board upheaval and nail pops.
