Final Framing and Two Additional Projects! [Video]

In this episode of Building on an Island, Wade visits two other worksites on Block island before we head to the BOAI site. At the first home, Wade and his team are installing a slate roof. He shares why they chose slate over other roofing materials, and why slate tile roofs are called a "forever roof." On the second site, a gorgeous Queen Anne renovation, Wade discusses how they're going to restore this 160-year-old home while maintaining its historical and architectural integrity. The house had a lot of rot in the original wood, so the team replaced much of the framing and created a floor system where none originally existed. They'll also have to replace all of the windows and doors. At the Building on an Island home, Wade discusses supply chain and other issues that the team is navigating. The crew has finished miscellaneous framing in the basement, living room, and kitchen. The exterior team has been working on the balcony and the white, PVC Versatex trim, and other details, including deck boards and asphalt shingles on the roof. He even shares his roofer's method of preventing hurricane-force winds from tearing away the shingles. As the exposure limit for the Huber ZIP system approaches, Wade gets advice on how to continue without voiding the warranty so they can install shakes and a stone veneer.
