had three days of favorable weather
got all the skin up and some trim.
moved the baby back home, now we wait for the doors, 2 weeks to build and then hopefully the next week for installation.
still have to do the back side door and porch area, then the mezzanine in the back half of the port
and some windows up high
made pass through for the water and sewer, that have screw on caps when we are gone.
still have some insulation vapor barrier to go up, then we will add in wall board and shredded insulation to fill the voids
yard is saturated, like walking on a wet sponge, we need some NO RAIN days

only have four days this week as the granddaughter is on he way for spring break
why do my pictures come out the wrong direction

foot print is 25.5 x 44.5 feet
with one door for the bus 12feet wide by 13 feet tall. I need 12 foot 7 inches of clearance with air in the suspension or 12 feet with air dumped.
the car garage door is a normal 7 foot tall by 8 feet wide. it will have a lift motor, the rv door will be manual .
the doors face WEST so the front is getting double on insulation . i ran my a/c drains and water filter drains out to a catch tank 250 gallon for watering the plants

installed the rear side entry door,
had to really be creative to match up metal as the original builder really screwed up a level cut.

Wouldn't have been easier to have put the hinges on the bottom so that the door will lay down instead of having to hold it up as you go through???

So I'll ask you and see if you can answer..... Why is the first thing that happens when a Sub Commander gives the order for silent running that everyone grabs the closest hatch door and slams it?

Are you holding your phone Horizontal with lens to the left? Notice how all the pics ('cept one) are rotated counter clockwise 90 degress? That is usually from taking pics on your phone with the phone vertical and the lens up. Forums don't do well with pics taken like that.

yep, now i think i got it .
we had a GULLEY washer last night, winds out of control, driving sideways rain.
only had one leak, and it was at the side door threshold. Hopefully this afternoons resealing and flashing adjustment fixed it.
Once i get the porch roof up, this will also do wonders at stopping driving rain at the door. We are also putting a storm door on it as well.
waiting on the front big doors is really pushing it. This thursday they should be at the installers, so hopefully the following week they get installed.
