The objectives for 2014 were abruptly changed on January 22 when I discovered that a big tree had fallen and torn out a chunk of the roof. The first objectives are to fix the roof and then log off the remaining dangerous and threatening trees. Then I'll get back to installing the interior ceilings.


1/22/14 Finding this tree debris on the porch when I arrived was an ominous sign that something was wrong.


1/22/14 Looking behind the cabin I could see that a big tree had fallen onto the cabin and torn a big hole in the eave of the roof.


1/22/14 Here is a shot of the hole in the roof.


1/22/14 The debris piled behind the cabin is a mixture of remnants of the tree and remnants of the roof.


1/24/14 You can see the ladder between the cliff and the cabin which allows me to reach the hanging scaffolding you can barely see. The deck has yet to be built on the two 4x4 cross pieces you can barely make out.


1/24/14 Here is a little better shot of the 4x4s and the first plank spanning between them.


2/5/14 This picture shows how the inner long 4x4, that will help support the new, higher, scaffold deck, is attached to the inner Grid B anchor hook


2/5/14 This shows how the outer long 4x4 is attached directly to the outer Grid B anchor hook. It's kind of hard to see in this picture.


2/5/14 The other end of the inner 4x4 is attached to a screw eye in the Grid C1 RPSL


2/5/14 The other end of the outer 4x4 is hung from the outer Grid C anchor hook using an old tire chain.


2/6/14 This is a shot of the high scaffold deck. It is high enough to allow working access to the ridge.


2/6/14 Looking down the roof you can see the four damaged roof panels. They will have to be trimmed and then overlapped by new panels over the repaired roof.


2/6/14 Here's a look inside the damaged peak of the roof. Everything this side of that vertical line you can barely see on the rafter webs going straight up to the peak will have to be removed and replaced.


2/6/14 The tree that fell dented the ridge cap in three places. Here you see two of them. The other one is on the left. None of them will cause a problem because I don't think they will leak. I'll check for sure once I go up on top of the roof to work.


2/6/14 Here you see that the C-channel under the ridge cap is nearly undamaged and can be reused maybe even by leaving it right where it is.


2/13/14 The knobs and pulls are installed on the bathroom cabinets.


2/13/14 Knobs and pulls installed on the kitchen cabinets.


2/13/14 Knobs and pulls are installed on kitchen cabinets.


2/13/14 Knobs are installed on the soffit cabinets.
