Bodega Study Plans

Here is another of our updated study plans. These are for the Bodega:

You can print a copy of the plans here.  Here are some of the features of the Bodega:

  • Starting at 261 sq. ft. (356 with the 1st floor bedroom added-on), it is designed with cost savings in mind. It is a perfect example of green design & well-proportioned architecture.
  • The plans include a full range with an over, built-in microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator and a stacking washer/dryer.  Hot water comes courtesy of a tank-less water heater.
  • The Bodega is designed to be built on a permanent foundation.

OK, folks. Let us know what you think of the Bodega. If  you could build it anywhere in the world, where would you put it? What would you change about the design? We love the feedback, so keep it coming!

KCI Roofing

Metal or asphalt shingles – that is the question.  The reality is I'll probably only be moving this place twice in my life, so shingles are an option. The problem is they'll need venting, and that's not a super attractive look. OTOH, I haven't ordered the metal, and minimum it will take 10 days plus it's twice as expensive.  Can I wait ten days?  The expense isn't really an issue.  Environmentally, metal makes more sense. It's recyclable where ashphalt is not.  And it will last. Decades! ***

Ack, it turns out my street is going to have its sewers replaced which means they'll be tearing the whole thing up.  I've got to get this place finished before this happens.  Yet another thing to worry about.

KCI Torrential rains

Denny and Aaron added more flooring to the loft.  I am happy, my tall husband will be even happier.  They also got the final roofing truss up, because that night the torrential rains came down.

The rain lasted about four hours; fortunately there was only a wee bit of water in the place.  It was easily cleared up, and I placed a bucket or two to catch anything else, then my daughter and I threw on yet another tarp.  This one isn't nearly as large as the first one. It's held down with skipping ropes since all the real ropes are holding down the other larger tarp.  We had quite a bit of fun getting the tarps up.  First we attached ropes to one side and then attached the ropes to croc shoes, then we started throwing.  It should have been a contest.  In general, three tosses and we got it over far enough that we could grab the other end, then it was just a matter of hauling the tarp up, then tying it down.

Tarps tend to get caught (and torn) on the roof peaks. That's where the water gets in.
