The rest of the roof metal was installed Saturday...
I know it doesn't look like much but I got all of the wood framing finished for the 36" soffit at the front.
I moved over to the east elevation and installed the home wrap and the window and door.
I picked up all of the siding...soffit and J trims this morning.
I need to p/u 6 4" round light boxes to install for the exterior sconces at the front wall and at all of the doors.
Tonight the transmission comes out of the 69 Dart to fix a broken flex plate and install a slightly bigger convertor. whistling
I won't be back into this until Wednesday. mad

The windows, door frame and the door sill were set in a bed of silicone sealant.
The inside gaps were then caulked back to the wood framing.
The bottoms of the windows were not caulked on the outside so as to not trap water if it were to penetrate the window frames.
Window's were purchased with the J channel for the siding already incorporated into the frames.
Door frames were ordered for 2x6 walls with extended jambs and the PVC trim and frame assembly that is designed to not rot out. up

A couple pics of the soffit framing and a stack of siding and soffit that will be the next phase to begin. runaway
All siding and soffit are Mastic Products.
Color for the siding is "Harbor Grey".
Grey J channel will be used on the ends with eaves under the soffit and around the door frames while white soffit trim will be used at the front and rear elevations at the rear of the soffit.
I'm going to make all of the exterior fascia and soffit trim using the .040 aluminum typical to the inside at the garage doors rather than the thin rolled products readily available.
I have some pretty neat materials ordered for the front elevation...no maintenance at all... boogie
I'll post pics once they come in...
Garage door supplier was on site and measured the openings after the trim installation so once they arrive they will be installed also. boogie

The garage door install is scheduled for Monday and Tuesday... boogie
I spent all last night installing all of the light boxes and the siding blocks for the electrical devices.
Set the laser up and shot all 4 elevations with a control line to measure from.
I was able to start installing the siding tonight on the east elevation.
I'll continue with the back tomorrow and then fall back and finish the eave above. up
It's hard to beat using the windows with the J trim for the siding incorporated around them. Turns out to be a really clean finish...

The options for vinyl sideing are pretty cool nowadays.. They were not around when I did my first house and it was alot more work....

Sunday was a short day.
We built the scaffold on the east elevation and installed the balance of the exterior sheathing on the truss's.
I cleaned up for a while and moved material around for the garage door installation on Monday.

They managed to get the 10' garage door installed today. The 16' door is scheduled for tomorrow...
The tracks allowed the door to be 4" below the trusses at the back side. up
The Liftmaster 8500 garage door opener was also installed today.

This type of window install would not be allowed here.

I managed to get most of the aluminum trim bent up for the eaves so if the rain stays away tomorrow I'll work on that.
I have a friend who is also building a new garage and borrowed a LED light fixture from him to try in mine.
It's a high bay light with 20,000 Lumens.
Somewhat pricey but not as bad as some I have seen.
It is so bright that its almost a distraction...I feel like I'm working in something using the old halogen light stands that light everything up fine but if you look at them they're blinding...
Granted these pics aren't the greatest but it really seems to cast a lot of shadows creating dark areas..
See what you think...I may need to come up with a better plan... work

This is the fixture turned off with a couple 4' led tube lights I had for temporary lights on instead.
One pic from outside with the door open and then closed.
Its definitely bright but being a high bay fixture designed for taller ceilings it feels like a big spotlight.
I think I need to look at less Lumens and more fixtures to eliminate the shadowing... shruggy

They're tall enough for my junk... up
Fortunately they're not tall enough for that...darn...whistling
I installed the rest of the soffit...flashing and siding on the East elevation.
I used the .040 Aluminum rather than the thin stuff...
It is a bright white and really pops against the grey siding and the roofing.
Finally I get a look at it without the scaffolding... boogie
Now to repeat it on the other side... runaway

It really makes things a lot easier when you don't use typical rolled flashing. This is all made from one piece of aluminum...Brake everything square and it will fit like a glove... devil
