Since our last update, the cidery has begun to look more like a building.
Roof trusses going on
Framing complete and exposed
A few days later with roof and house wrap added. We laid out 4 inches of rigid insulation on the floor in preparation for the concrete floor, which we will pour this week. While we still have some outside details to complete (windows, doors, siding), much of the work will be inside from now on, so the outside will not change as drastically as it has up to now.
Having skills is both a curse and a blessing. We couldn’t afford to pay someone to build this building, but it is a tremendous amount of work to fit into an already full life. We look forward to reaping the benefits of this investment of time, energy and money in the coming years. Sweat equity has certainly been a staple in our life plan to date!
