Ceiling is finished! Put the last panels of ply bead up this weekend. And finished it off with some touch up paint and magic eraser over my grimy finger prints.
Most of the panels were tacked into the purlins however I had 4 that had no backer. For these I used copious amounts of the Fast Acting PL3 variety of Liquid Nails and toe nailed them into the rafters along the edges before securing the supporting trim.
Pretty confident this will be enough to hold them as the manufactures recommended span is 24” center to center and my span is about 20”.
Anyway now it’s on to finish the interior gable ends…
One minor calamity. The ground had frozen so hard that the lumber I had stored under the shed rose at least 3 inches, raising the entire middle of my floor up in a big bubble in the middle! Had to get out the old bottle jack to raise the side of the cabin and pull all the warped cedar planks out. I had left what I thought to be plenty of clearance, however Mother Nature begged to disagree and I won’t make that mistake again.
I also realized that a few of the nails in the subfloor missed the floor joists. Will have to remedy this in the spring after it all settles back down.
Had to snowshoe everything in as the drive was covered in 3 feet of snow. Which was fine, until it came time for the generator. The generator’s generator was low on gas. http://ashleysaturdays.tumblr.com/
