Securing the Cottage...

I key milestone and a nice feeling is reached when the windows and doors are finally in.

At this point:
  • The roof is finished and shingles, and
  • the entire cottage exterior is covered in a waterproof sheet - that is the Tyvek stuff I discussed in an earlier post.
With the windows and doors installed the weather issue - mostly the rain - is solved.

There is also a mental milestone when you have installed locks on all of the doors. It means that who can lock the door when the construction ends for the weekend.
