Landscaping in and around Trinity Point is taking shape, with the retaining walls now complete and backfilled, awaiting planting of new vegetation and footpath construction. These works on the south facing side will allow future access to the beautiful waterfront. Here families can enjoy life's simple pleasures; lazing by the sandy shore beneath the shade of Norfolk Island pines or taking a stroll within our 5-star facilities.
I had to spend some time fixing a mistake. I didn't leave enough margin for error in my roof overhangs to account for the difference between a SketchUp model and the real world.
The problem: I designed the overhang to be small because of the 8'6" width restriction. I might even have gone for no overhang except I need to protect the rainscreen (air gap behind the siding) from rain. So I planned for just 1/2" gap between the fascia board (the trim board that covers the vertical sides of the roof panels) and the siding. But in the real world, the SIPs didn't end up fitting precisely where I expected - so in some places I was left with a 0" gap instead of the 1/2" gap.
The solution: Varying width blocks every 16" to ensure a consistent gap between the siding and the fascia board. I closed up the bottom of the bays this created with insect screen to keep bugs out.
We're helping development owners and construction managers from out-of-state keep up to date on this new development in Longmont.
