Plugging leaks (August 11-15)

The tar and gravel was stripped from the roof extensions and enough siding removed to ensure that the new roof material 100% covered needed areas. A new drain spout was added in the front and insulation added to ensure that the roofs slope to the drains.

The office studs were covered with a wood preservative at the base of the wall and a few other locations to guard against mold and mildew grown. New insulation was added. The interior wall was insulated, too. A few cross members with indications of rot were replaced as well as all of the building paper.
