Z GIRTS ON THE WALLS AND ROOF
We’re using Z girts to securely hold two layers of ROCKWOOL exterior insulation and sheathing in place. On the walls, we have smaller Z girt pieces spaced out according to need. But for the roof, we’re actually using long, continuous pieces—due to the roof load and the uplift potential with the storms and hurricane-level winds we get here in New England.
We have a surface mount skylight ready to go in. And we’ve had multiple conversations with the Tesla quality assurance rep to make sure we don’t need to install a special curb. He gave us the go-ahead and said flashing shouldn’t be an issue. Once again, reaching out to vendors and asking these questions ahead of time can save you a world of trouble later on.
ARCHITECTURAL DETAILS MAKE THE WINDOWS POP
We’ve got a really fantastic detail happening with the cedar shingles on the exterior of the house. The plywood is going to come right up to the window extension jamb, will get taped, and then the cedar shingles will run right into the window jamb. It’s similar to how inside the house the walls will tie right into the window jambs—creating a continuous surface to the glass. It’s details like this that make a home really stand out. And as we make more progress on this project, we’re getting a glimpse into the mind of the architect and how attention to detail in the smallest of decisions can make a huge impact.
