HVAC

I blocked the HVAC registers in with 2x4s to hold them solid. I bought the fancy low resistance ones for maximum performance.

I used special R8 flex duct rhat I bought from the HVAC distributor. No Home Despot stuff here.

California requires you seal the fittings with this gooey sticky stuff.

The flex duct comes out of the box like a Jack-in-the-box when you open it.

Judy likes to work with sheet metal.

FIRE

No, the place isn’t on fire, but out of the utmost concern for our tenants safety, we are installing fire sprinklers.

ROOF

Well, winter is coming on and we were worried about rain messing up the OSB roof sheathing. We had the vents installed but we had other things to complete before the shingles.

I searched the entire enternet several times trying to find out how to make a roof curb and came up blank so I decided to make a curb for the roof jack to sit over.

It was scary way up there on the roof but it helped my hemorrhoids.

I lagged the curb into the trusses with these expensive 6″ headlock screws.

Then I placed the roof jacks for the bath exhausts and kitchen hood vents.

They make these neat dryer vend ducts that fit in 2×4 walls.

The electrical service went on the end of the house. I blocked the roof penetrations so It wouldn’t pull off.

Here is Judy caulking all the nail holes in the eaves, which I painted before the roofers showed up.

I also painted the drip edge before it was placed.

A special truck delivered the shingles and two workers stacked the material on the roof.

It took a crew of 2 a little over 2 days to place 3000 square feet of asphalt shingles.
