HOUSE BUILD SHUT DOWN BY LIGHTNING STORM!



we shut the garage doors in an attempt to keep it cool in here today so we have a place to retreat to so far it's working but I'm really curious to see once the house is dried in will it stay cool or will it be hot I don't know beasts yeah I just want you guys to see what lazy bum was doing that could be you Oh everybody is sleeping on moms clothing mmm I'm surprised it's not too warm in here for you what did Benny room mmm have a good afternoon munchkin Jesse are we actually ready for Trevor for once Wow I can hear him there is [Applause] it's called an action camera whatever that means and this looks like action to me so first panel of the day up we go – walked our goal today is to go up and down the ladders as little as possible so we're gonna see if Trevor can lift everything and everything hooked up on his own however when he lifts the panel's up they tend to want to fall or kick out at the bottom and that happened on our first one partially because there's a lag screw in the way not a big deal it's okay so one of us might have to get off the ladder every time he left super panel anyways just to make sure that doesn't happen but it'll be interesting today to see how things go with all of our panels prepped I'm talking a hundred percent it makes me really happy if we could get this roof done and even over half the roof done and even happier if we're done at a reasonable hour we tried to plan ahead and make sure we have everything we need up here so again we have to go epidermal adder as little as possible details details ready to do this oh my gosh I'm so excited I can't wait to have this done numero dos hang it in there things are getting more difficult as we get higher and higher higher we're sparing you guys a lot of the details of trying to get these panels to fit basically we found that we have to kind of do what we did on the walls we have to use leverage and we have to get one corner in and then we have to use ratchet straps on both sides to pull the panel tight I'd say things are going smooth relatively speaking we're going smooth this is the best part right here we need to watch the drywall gap did you check that we've reached max altitude on our ladders now it's time to turn them into extension letters so what's he sending up he's sending up this panel next so that we don't have to move the ladders again sweet that's really fart stinking I mean smart thinking yep if we have to we'll move the scout board up higher and we can work off of that for one panel need a hand or you got it oh yeah you're flush I'm not but I'm perfect so if I just ratchet this we're good oh yeah who's good did some gymnastics move backwards of the mallets [Applause] block of wood coming down look how much shade we have it's like 130 and this is all shaded that's kind of nice little break from the heat you're getting the ratchet well we finally got it after bringing the panel down nothing was wrong with it there weren't any screws sticking out there was nothing in the spline yeah let me toss it up ready yeah we actually do have a small maybe three-eighths of an inch of gap up here but that's actually okay because on the other end we have about 3/8 of an inch gap so now our roof is once again climbing non tilted I don't know how Jesse's feeling but as of right now I'm not enjoying being on the extension ladder at a height but I don't think it's the height that's the problem I think it's a leaning over trying to manipulate this 400 foot panel of course only one end of it and using a mallet or a sledge and kind of leaning over putting screws in not a fan and I'm pretty good with Heights next time for the little shorties we have a pretty good storm brewing over here the forecast says chance of thunderstorms I would agree with that and chance of rain probably starting in an hour or two and definitely a chance of rain in the morning I think we've come to peace with idea of our sips getting wet but I don't know that we've come to peace with our drywall getting wet for anyone that doesn't know what drywall consists of it's basically two layers of paper with kind of like I don't even know what you call this like it's a chalky substance in the middle and yeah that's what happens to it when it bends so I'm not really sure that we want this to get wet but I'm not sure how much of a choice we have I think that's the frustrating part of a lot of this building that we're doing is that even if things just go according to plan we can only work so fast if we want zero it's just putting on another skub for the letters boy we have two small panels – these little shorties and then we have two full width panels for feet and then we have our top pieces so hard work I would say is barely starting so Jessie did most of this panel without me I just have to ratchet strip um I guess I didn't realize I guys looking down there for the seams oh yeah I'm just turning it aren't I how does your end don't I just pulling it up yep next one wants to rip the other spline out too much it's like not lined up anymore huh yes I got it that has to be pretty good there's a small gap but if I'm touching on the OSB then okay Jessie says our cuts aren't perfect because it's cut by hand and that's what muddying is for well I don't know if that's what it's for but it'll help fill in the cracks and cover the screw holes boo-boos still napping in the air be I turned I turned the overhead fan on for him and I turn the other fan to blow crosses for and they turn I turned all the lights off pretty Lerner goes pretty Lerner with the right crew you could totally blow this under nope doesn't lightning go from like a hydrant like water so whoever is the most hydrated down like that the heck I'm like way the heck up here I knew that was gonna happen as soon as I let my guard down no it's not Otis comes the rain oh this is gonna be an exciting finish when it's hang upon as Trevor holding it still not really this is tight no so I'm not sure to do here I feel like the splines aren't lined up I feel like I feel like the bottom needs to come out might be a little look from the side there's lightning behind us oh wow that's scary Bobo we better get down from here Jessie go go go I'm waiting on you I'm tight yeah all right screw so the crane he's gonna Boom down while we cut these panels he's right behind me is a tremendous Thunder head and actually there's one overhead Wow I don't think the camera does that cliff justice looks like it's falling in right now so we've got thirty four and a half inches what we're gonna do is the panel is gonna come up it's gonna be held back because we held it back at the at the eave in case we had a lot of issues with the panel coming up near gaps and things we know we're gonna come up short it's okay I just want to make sure that the sheetrock goes pretty much to the peak of the roof there for two reasons one you want to finish the inside there and then second of all we're gonna have to shoot fun that's way too tight oh I see what you're doing got it and then we're going to shoot foam down into the piece by shooting foam down into the peak we'll be able to fill up the gap between the panels and we want to have sheetrock in there to kind of catch the foam on the back side I can't even say what today feels like but I really feel our house is being transformed before eyes you wouldn't think that walls garage door and a roof would do that much to a home but I feel like it really does our house is starting to feel dried in even if technically we have a bit of work to do before it truly is Dryden I think we're really happy with the progress we've made today part of me thought we wouldn't even get this half of this roof finished but I think we've worked really well together I'm happy Jessie and I worked through this together and we communicated effectively they think dinner is going to be extremely satisfying tonight need a cuttin coming out for y'all stay up there do you need my help I was gonna play the drone yeah so I think what we're gonna do is kind of chill for a little bit and see if this kind of passes not too thrilled about sticking the boom up there this storms coming from a weird direction we don't usually get weather this direction and it's definitely moving pretty quick so maybe it'll be out of here in 15-20 minutes you it's official guys we're done shut down and we looked at the radar and it's just nasty lightning everywhere and we'll probably be fine but what if we're not so it seems a good idea not to stick a giant metal rod in the air less than three miles away we're getting nothing but ground strikes over there I mean it's conceivable and what's deceptive is it looks really calm right now but the radar shows it doing this it's going in a circle one second you look at the clouds and they're going south than east then north so really frustrating yeah we almost had it we got so close I don't even want to know what it looks like to have a crane hit by lightning no I can go my entire life I'm a certainly it's got a lot of rain tonight and our drywall might get wet and it's not moisture resistant but if it's not I'm sure you're not like flood resistant your shelter would tell us like it okay here's the thing like you know I've been in the flood restoration business and I'll tell you what a lot of sheetrock gets really wet and they dry it in place in fact insurance companies pay more to do what's called in-place drying than to tear sheetrock out and rebuild walls so you know it can get wet it's better wet in this position than it is any other position so we better make sure that our sheetrock in the garage is tarped because I think we may get a little bit of water in the garage yep but it'll all dry out like we said before if you think your house has never been wet it's just because you don't know about it and I think oh listen I have these like ideas about how our house is gonna be and then there's like reality we're like our sips aren't gonna get wet and then like we pick them up and it's raining and we're like well sips are wet we we did our best yeah good job you too this actually went really good I thought I thought we had it I thought we did do thought we had it in fact we did have it we've been looking up at the clouds for like an hour yeah waiting for some sign that we see their stopper where is Trevor's not his availability is limited over the next handful of days so we're gonna to work on that it's ok well well you guys we'll see what happens I think we're gonna try to work on panel prep assuming the weather cooperates tomorrow if we can't do the sheetrock we'll leave that till the very last second put it on and then put the panels up so there's a good chance within a couple of days we may be able to raise a good part of the rest of the roof or the rest of the roof we're just pushing we've got we got to get this done we can't not we can't have this what like half open this is all bad here comes the rain I think it's time to clean up it's time for dinner it's not very often that I wish it would hail but I wish it would hail right now because that way it wouldn't be water it would just be like little ice cream them bounce off the roof and go away but this is gonna be rain oh my god what is that can you see it on camera um yeah I don't even know how this happens Wow I think I was so worried about getting one of the panels in yeah that this happened on the bruise is that's not when you got kind of bumped by the panel oh my god kind of sandwiched between the skub and the ladder and I thought is you know how sometimes you lean on something and your body's dented yeah like it goes away I thought it was that I felt like a huge lump um yeah that's gonna be a real tight one sometimes when you feel like your life is threatened you do things happen to you and you let me know you don't even feel it you're just like what the heck how the husband yeah quit quit quit fooling these guys you're a tough cracker the shower go to dinner okay it's spring right you don't want whether those numbers on your feet by Trevor see you soon thanks fear helped

    still no safety harnesses and you even just touched on being uncomfortable with it. Is it the heat that is stopping you guys from tying yourselves off?

    Doesn't it seem surreal that your talking about mudding 🙂 You've come so far. Roof looks fabulous! Timbers look beautiful from inside against the white.

    Whenever I've bought moisture resistant sheetrock its green. That just doesn't look like it. Hope I'm wrong.

    Get some safety harnesses!!!! When we do SIP roofs we prep the panels and join 2 together with wood stringers that attache to the lifting plates. This way you know that the panels are fitting together.

    11:40 kind of crazy watching you show how weak drywall is but still using it in a load bearing capacity. I really hope everyone is wrong and its ok but im no expert and it sure raised red flags when i first saw how it was being done. Though i did look it up and the compressive strength for 1/2 is 350psi which is better than i thought it would be. I just dont know how it will hold up long term.

    If the sips get wet they will delaminates from the foam. Also you will not be able to apply peal and stick ice and water shield. Your Sheetrock will be a small problem relatively. So hurry and put some tarp. Use large washers with screws in the eyelet holes of the tarp.
