Wednesday Progress

21 Jul

We got right to it after work and finished the ledger board installation. This took a little doing because we are not resheathing and siding this wall… yet. Part of this wall was also affected by the rotten wood damage so we did put new plywood on the lower portion of the wall where the ledger board is being attached. We also installed some tyvek over this new plywood so we had to tie it in with the existing tar paper as best we could by slipping it underneath. It was very tempting to just start ripping shingles down so we could put up all new plywood, insulation, etc. But we resisted so we can stay focused on the deck. Plus, we have big plans for that wall so it probably makes sense not to do it twice.
In any event, the ledger board is all in place and we are ready to move on to the next step.
