In fits and starts the casita project is moving forward. Framing is 99% complete, windows are going in, roof is going on, siding is going up. It's not all exactly like originally designed, as various hurdles have sprung up in the scheduling and ordering of materials that have caused some quick compromises, but it's still shaping up nicely.
The Zip-System sheathing is helping better define the overall massing and window composition.
The master bedroom deck structural steel is up to support the exposed rafter tails of the roof trusses. The "eyebrow" framing over the downstairs sliding glass doors is also in place and helps define the gound floor connection to the backyard.
Exposed v-groove cedar roof decking caps the roof and extends eaves out to give shading and definition to the shed roof. Metal siding is covering the stair saddlebag as well as the downstairs closet saddlebag. Exposed clerestory framing in the saddlebag provides for a top-lit stairwell to ascend to the upstairs master bedroom suite.
Translucent PolyGal will enclose the areas of exposed framing to complete the stairwell clerestory.
