May/June Update

May and its surprising amount of rain is gone and we're into June. Progress on the Thrivent Builds house has continued apace. It has its front porch, roof sheathing, and is getting the careful nailing required for shear strength in event of an earthquake. The numbers spray-painted on the OSB indicate the nailing pattern, e.g., 6 inches on the edges of sheets and 12 inches in the middle, all the way down to 2 and 12 above the door. That's a lot of nails!
