The roof is almost done

We set the final beam yesterday. It's a 15' glulam that carries the load of the 2x12 rafters over the outer portion of the addition. It was a little tricky, but not nearly as bad as the girder truss or 19' beam. Here's a shot of the south side:

And here's a shot of the north side:

Today we finished setting the rafters, as well as the 2x4 tails.

Here's a shot looking over into our neighbor's yucky yard:

We should be moving on to the roof sheathing tomorrow. YAY!

I can only imagine the view from our neighbors yard into our "yucky" yard. :)
