BBBBq #4 completed, high strength steel rod installed, but sheathing is still unfinished…
We had a couple of hurdles slow the build yesterday: our usual delicious food and blistering sun! It was a whopping 98 degrees outside and even hotter in our tiny wood box of a house. Hydration was key!
Gabe and Jen braved the heat to help with sheathing and the installation of a threaded rod in the above video.
Jen and Jenna started fitting the insulation in the walls… because why not make it hotter, right? This is actually challenging and tedious work because you have to cut two sets of foam boards – a 1-inch and a 2-inch in order to create 3 inches of insulation. As you recall, we don’t have much room to work with, so most of the cutting happened inside the house.
While soaking up the rays in our sun soaked sauna, we realized our insulation boards made great light reflectors for portrait photography. So we ended the day with a fun and sweaty photo shoot.
