Def. “a colloid in which both phases are liquids”. Whatever the heck that means. But as it relates to the black goop on the roof, it means it has to be applied at temperatures above 50 degrees. So, each afternoon when the sun peaks around Wedge Mountain, we race to the roof to apply another coat of the waterproof membrane.
It has been a tumultuous week for sure.
The 4x4 shoring came down without a hitch. No sag, no give. Rock solid.
Or maybe not so solid. The rains came down and my waterproof deck leaked into the bedrooms below. Not good.
Also not good is the Nana Wall, or folding door product that I bought last summer after seeing it at a home show. Made in Germany, it is essentially a folding wall of glass panels. Very cool. Also very expensive. I ordered three of them referencing a 6’8” door. I agreed to increase the height to 6’10” when they said the cost was the same. What I didn’t know, was Nana’s measurement is of the ‘unit’, not the door. And a 6’10” unit is actually only a 6’4” door. Another problem to solve.
The regional daily newspaper came by to do a feature story on the house. Should be out on Monday.
In between this that and the other, I settled the last of the easement issues with the Irrigation District. Whew.
Certainly not a boring week.
