Virginia Northern Neck
-- Building materials --
Here are some photos of building materials on the site, ready
Advantek sub-flooring. This material is 3/4-inch thick OSB
with a high glue content and with tongues and grooves cut into it. If you
look closely at the exposed edge you can see the tongues. Later on you'll
see photos of this being installed. This forms the sub-floor onto which
the finished floor is applied.
Bundles of wall studs -- the house will have 9-foot ceilings,
so, these studs are cut to be 104-5/8 inches long. That way, when the
studs are assembled into a wall, the wall is 9 feet tall. The blue
material in the back is exterior grade 7/16-inch thick oriented strand board (
OSB ) -- this is the sheathing that will go on the roof, under the shingles.
Vehicles in the background: Chili Pepper Red Mini Cooper is ours, white
Ford truck belongs to Chris, our builder.
