Renovation Start Up – Pinhole Roof Leaks

Day #115

April 25, 2020 – This morning we traveled to the cottage to get the renovation started back up. It took awhile to get everything packed so we got a late start. Not going to get much done today but that’s okay.

When we arrived I noticed that we had some pinhole leaks in the roof above the old kitchen. When Troy and I covered this section back in June of 2019 ,we only had 15 lb. felt. No wonder it was leaking.

Luckily, I had some 30 lb. roofing felt on hand. I got up on the roof and quickly re-covered the area that was leaking. That will take care of the leaks until the metal roof is on.

Rob starting cleaning up the mess the Lumberjacks left in the yard and I did an inventory of my fasteners and straightened out my tools. That is the extent of what we accomplished today.

Before we went back home I set 8 mouse traps in various places. Robrandi wants to be sure that we don’t have any mice. Tomorrow we are coming back down to meet with D&N Construction to begin the process of pricing up the metal roofing.
