San Damiano Center for Sustainability:
Siding, Roofing in Progress, Part I
by Eric Fitts, Director
Siding and roofing have begun!
The ShelterKit kit has finally been exhausted. (Just a few latches remain!)
Eric, Gemma, Raine, and Steve pitched in, completing a a few small door adjustments that remained on the slider and loft door, staining/sealing exterior trim for the loft door, completing the underlayment on the north gable wall, running some trim pieces for the siding (high ladder acts III and IV of V are now complete!), and learning about standing seam metal roofing from the roofing crew.
Next steps are completing the underlayment on the sheathing for the west and east walls, installing the 36″ steel door to the picnic area, completing the metal roofing and metal trim and siding, and plenty of interior work (interior work is quite appropriate at a place named after San Damiano, since that’s where St. Francis’ interior (soul) work began).
