The sun tunnels work great! I have been on a few jobs with them and during daylight hours there is no need to turn on the lights in most cases!

Thanks.
Thanks guys its flying now It might be done next week if all goes well..

Today they installed the A/C sleve in the back wall. He also trimmed out the front soffit area. Then he started the vinyl on the side and back.

Here are some pictures of the vinyl going on.

Trimmed out with the AZEK and vinyl corners.






Here is the A/C sleve. I know it looks low but the heat will be above it. and inside the floor is lower than the outside grade. Sorry for the shaky pictures.



They also started the front porch. There's a 4" deep 12x12 footing for the PT 6x6 . The weight from the roof is on the wall not on the 6x6 so all it will hold is the porch itself. They are putting a 8" sonotube for the bottom of the stairs. Here are some pictures.







Here is a picture of the roof with the two sun tunnels on it.

Very nice Wayne. Those guys are really moving on that garage, huh? Built just in time for the snow.

I still think you need to leave the big window looking into the garage

Looking great Wayne! Are you going to drywall it this go-around or will that be later on? Will you be doing the electrical and air line plumbing?

I'm having an electrician install the the load center and power from the garage to the house. Then I'll do the rest of the wiring as I go. The contractor doesn't want to leave the garage without the ceiling being done so he is strapping the trusses. I didn't know he was planning to do that. It just shows how he does it right. The rock will have to be later on as budget permits.

Sounds good, go at your pace! No need to get in a hurry, think things through and do it right the first time! Any word on that car of yours?

Got a little progress today. They strapped the trusses to keep them straight untill I put the sheetrock in later on. They also did some of the vinyl on the front of the garage. They stopped short of the top because I have a gable end vent for the two peaks ordered . They are suposed to be here Monday morning.

Here are a few pictures of what they did today.







The camara makes the vinyl look a little funky bit its straight.
