We have almost completed the sheathing on the exterior walls. Shown here is the new level of scaffolding which makes it possible to install the top layer of plywood; and some more Tyvek.
We built lots of scaffolding this week; shown at left (looking up) are some temporary sliding platforms within the 3-foot zone between the existing house and the main part of the addition.
We also constructed the mezzanine within the big studio space, shown in the foreground covered by a blue tarp. During construction, we use these various platforms to bring plywood sheathing up to the scaffolding.
