Sitting room progress

We made a noticeable difference to the sitting room yesterday... 

All walls were insulated

Outside trim removed and roof trays begun

We needed to make some adjustments to allow for air flow within what will be essentially attic space.

Bug screen was added and blocks put on to allow for airflow

Roughly 1/2" gap below this top trim now, allowing air to pass into the attic

Holes made at the top end of roof

With any luck, today I can get mesh over the top holes, finish the roof trays, insulation in the roof and the vapour barrier put everywhere. If we have time, perhaps begin putting up the plywood walls.

This space feels so very different now compared to when we began and soon it will be toasty warm too.
