Teens, garden sheds, pizza!

Rob Abbott reporting!
Daily Log, Delta Resorts Muskoka Build: Date: June 13, 2011


Rob Abbott reporting 
Site Supervisor: Rob
Volunteers: Gravenhurst High School Shop Teacher: Richard Snyder, and about a dozen students who signed in, but I don't remember their names.
Visitors: Doug and Emma

  Daily Log: 
Before the students showed up, I talked to the neighbour and she agreed to let us use her electricity during the build.


 Doug, acting as school bus driver, and Mister Snyder delivered truckloads of teenagers to continue erecting the garden shed. They got the roof sheathed, one fascia board up, and two pizzas devoured.


 They plan to return Wednesday morning to finish the *sheathing, *fascia, and maybe the door.

*Sheathing:
A layer of boards or of other wood or fiber materials applied to the outer studs, joists, and rafters of a building to strengthen the structure and serve as a base for a weatherproof exterior cladding.

 *Fascia:
Used to describe the horizontal "fascia board" which caps the end of rafters outside a building, which can be used to hold the rain gutter. The finished surface below the fascia and rafters is called the soffit or eave. A soffit is also often installed between the ceiling and the top of wall cabinets in a kitchen, set at a 90 degree angle to the horizontal soffit which projects out from the wall.

  Action/Follow-Up Items: 
Rob: Return scaffold to SMS. Build Committee meeting early next week to plan.
Vince: Follow-up with Bracebridge High School
Doug: Pick up students Wednesday at 9:00
Emma: I'll need food for about 12 teenagers at 10:45 on Wednesday

 Next Days: 
Wednesday – GHS students return to work on shed. They will leave the school around 9:00 and finish by 11 a.m.   The next major item is the excavation, but I want to wait until we know for sure about the site grading plan.


  Materials/Tools: 
GHS won't be able to do the shingles, so I bought a tarp to protect them.
