Barb and I spent most of Sunday sheathing the roof with Jimmy and Jay, a couple of the guys on the framing crew. We were too busy for photos at the time, but I got a few pictures of the roof sheathing afterwards. We still have to look for ‘shiners’ on the roof, but after that we’ll be ready for our next inspection–roof diaphragm and shear wall.
We had a few hours of our weekend remaining so we picked up our new water heater, a 40 gallon Kenmore PowerMiser 12. It meets the new California energy efficiency standards, plus we can get a (small) rebate from PG&E for it. OSH had a better price than Sears, plus we had a 10% coupon for OSH so we ended up paying about $330 (plus sales tax) after the discount and rebate–not bad for a high-efficiency water heater with a 12-year warranty!
