Day 30- log home roof decking

October 7th, Thursday

Day 30 – Log Crew finishes installing T&G roof covering. This is a finished product on the inside ceiling so extreme care must be taken to avoid rain. Good pre-planning to ensure no rain is in the forecast for several days before starting is critical. This is a very long process from start to finish before you can place a roofing membrane to dry-in and protect you finish T&G. As you will see it took a full 7 days, from day 30 to 37 to be able to dry roof in. If it had rained it would have stained and warped all the beautiful T&G finished ceiling wood, so planning ahead is required.
