I finished the house wrap this weekend. With that on the walls and the Grace Ice & Water Shield on the roof, the barn is pretty well equipped to keep out the rain. I can comfortably work on San Jose projects for a while now without feeling as though I need to hurry it up trying to get the barn closed in.
You might have noticed that I always take sort of gloomy-looking pictures of the barn, either on the shady side or just after sundown. It’s not that I live north of the arctic circle or something, it’s just that the details are more easily visible. I do have plenty of dappled sunshine available which is very pretty in person even if it doesn’t photograph so clearly. Also I’ve usually accomplished more by the end of the day than I have at the beginning.
