  • Dear Sup

    By yourself? Demo, siding, sheeting and vapor barrier - along with rafter ties? Er... Don't plan on any sleep...

    Make darn sure it won't be raining.

    Don't you have any brother-in-laws you can bribe into helping like normal people?

    Hi Teal,

    Haven't gotten that far yet. This much work, yeah I'm stuck farming some of it out, if only because I need more hands than my own, maneuvering long and heavy lumber. That, and there will be some roof work, after ripping the chimney off. I hate ladders.

    My next step is likely to find a real engineer who can determine how I can fix the rafter ties. I have some ideas, but it's probably best to find someone who knows better.

    Edit: pic of the structural problem.
