Roof sheathing finished, new water heater


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!
