Mini update on garage project. Carpenter has a couple of other jobs keeping him occupied during the week so it’s just weekends for us. Meaning Saturdays. As I mentioned, I do like helping him. It’s kind of a blast from the past. I was a carpenter apprentice back in the day, before becoming a parent, then a teacher aide, then a computer nerd.
Or maybe it’s a guy thing to enjoy having that hammer swinging in the toolbelt. I am, after all, a guy.
Anywho, we got the door and window installed in the entry room. The entry room is completely enclosed and covered with roofing felt. The black felt contrasts nicely with the white vinyl trim of the window and door. It rained tonight, and the entry room stayed quite dry.
In case you’re wondering, Internet, the entry room will not be left in tarpaper, but will be sided with beige colored vinyl siding to match the house and garage.
And “OSB” stands for Oriented Strand Board, which is an “evolved” material, and not the crap we used to call “chipboard” or “waferboard” back in the 1970s. Nominal tickness of these boards was 5/8 inch.
